Rubber Removal

High-pressure water blasting effectively removes runway rubber. RETEX uses the world’s largest water-blasting unit. No chemicals are required and water waste is recovered, meaning this safe, reliable process doesn’t harm the environment.

Retexturing & Rejuvenation

Give road pavements a new lease of life with RETEX’s cutting-edge Cleanstar technology. Water blasting rectifies wheel rutting and flush bitumen. Texture depth and skid resistance are restored, longevity is assured.

Friction Testing

Runway friction testing is necessary to keep passengers and staff safe. Using SARSYS friction value testing units, RETEX will measure an entire runway within hours and generate an electronic report. CASA and ICAO compliant.

Audio Tactile Rumble Strips

Audio tactile delineation is proven to save lives on major arterial highways and motorways. RETEX’s all-weather, self-propelled OzRumble machine cuts long-lasting rumble strips into road pavement surfaces with ease.

Latest Project Fulton Hogan Western Australia

See road friction testing projects

Fulton Hogan awarded a large road retexturing project to our Western Australian crew, requiring high pressure water blasting to remove flush bitumen and restore the road condition along a major heavy vehicle route. Requiring a 2-3mm surface macro-texture, water blasting was identified as the most successful and proven methodology to achieve these specifications. Extending the life of the pavement and eliminating slip hazards in wet conditions are major benefits of road retexturing. Utilising our efficient Stripe Hog technology allowed us to undertake the rejuvenation works and successfully deliver the project against time and budget constraints.
