Tyre Rubber On Runways

Thu Jun 15, 2006 2:27 am

My question is how is the tyre rubber cleaned on runways ?

Also, I remember reading sometime back, that there was talk of making tyrea to rotate so that there will be less rubber left on runways but I gues it was never implemented ??

Thanks

here they pressure wash them clean with hot water, and some sort of desolving agent....
