Abstract:
Iran's historical city of Isfahan has started using traffic nano paints produced by Reef Iran Chemical Industry Complex in the runways of its international airport.

Home-Made Traffic Nano Paints Utilized in Isfahan Airport

Tehran, Iran | Posted on June 3rd, 2012

The nano paints produced by the Iranian company have already been used in the lining of streets in the city of Tehran.

According to the head of Machinery Organization of Iran Airports Company, traffic nano paints produced by Reef Iran Company were used in Runway No 2 of Martyr Beheshti International Airport of Isfahan in the second half of 2011. Since that time, some problems have been solved including light reflection from the ground, short period of paint stability on surface, being dirty, opaqueness of the runway surface, and the lack of sufficient sight for airplane landing.

"The runways are usually repainted every three months in crowded airports," Asqar Hosseini said about the depreciation of paint in airports.

"During the landing of airplanes, tires are warmed due to the friction between the tire and the ground, and some part of the tire sticks to the ground during the melting process. This fact gradually results in the opaqueness of the runway, and it decreases the sight of the pilot for the identification of runway lines," he added.

According to Mr. Hosseini, traffic nano paints increase the period of repainting, and therefore, they reduce the expenses.

Traffic nano paints are more resistant against scratch and abrasion in comparison with cold traffic paints. Therefore, they have more lifetime and higher performance. In addition, such paints are able to compete with other common paints in the market in regard with price and improved properties.
