SMITH will be removing airfield markings with the SMITH X3 and LNX8 Dry Rotary Erasers

You will witness how markings can easily be removed without grooving, micro-cracking, or water. 

X-Series Erasers are used when new markings must be immediately applied over the same location or in a new one.

While you are in town, we invite airfield operations personel to visit our factory located 17 minutes north of the airport in Pompano Beach.

Pavement Preservation Tools Found at ATSSA

Thank you for your interest in the SMITH pavement preservation tools found at ATSSA. SMITH tools are designed to improve pavement conditions so markings, overlays, and repairs last longer.

If you attended the workshop, “Perfect Prep in Four Steps,” we broke down the steps to properly prepare and preserve sensitive surfaces using a rotary erasing method. This tool not only removes stubborn surface contaminants and markings, but it creates the proper surface porosity to maximize mechanical bonding, without surface micro-cracking or bruising for successful new applications. Learn more here.

During our demonstration in Phoenix, we removed pavement markings while preserving the integrity of the city’s old pavement surfaces. Here’s a short video on what you may have missed.

If you visited the SMITH exhibit, this video, “10 ways Stripers and Pavement Maintenance Professionals can Earn More in 2017,” was previewed. We also offered this short 10-question survey to rank contractor performance.

Don’t know SMITH?
In everything we do, all of us at SMITH believe in challenging the status quo. We believe in thinking and acting differently. The way we challenge the status quo is by making our surface-prep products versatile, simple to operate, and user-friendly. We make the type of prep tools that help our customers earn more on every job using their equipment or a SMITH. The road to SMITHing was paved with potholes. This article reveals how our failures helped our customers succeed.

If you would like to partner with us for safer, sustainable surfaces, or of you want to improve your pavement preservation services, please click here.

We look forward to working with you!
