Tenon Part of Runway Restoration Project at New Century Air Center

The New Century Tarmac Replacement Project has been awarded over half a million dollars in federal money from The U.S. Department of Transportation in efforts to restore almost 8,000 feet of runway in Gardner, Kansas. To complete this project, more than 32 totes of Tenon Wax Cure 1315 WB were supplied and applied.

The funds for this project are dispersed from the Federal Aviation Administration’s Airport Improvement Program, which was bolstered by the bipartisan infrastructure law with $22 million for Kansas airports, which includes the New Century Air Center. “As the second-busiest airport in the state of Kansas, we are seeing a large uptick in traffic, and the need for a reset on our major surfaces has never been greater,” Larry Peet, Johnson County Airport Commission interim executive director, said.

Tenon Wax Cure 1315 WB is specifically designed to retain moisture of freshly placed concrete and reflect the heat of the sun to protect excess heat build-up. The application of this product will restore safety and structural integrity to the deteriorated runways, further extending the runway’s overall life.

The New Century Tarmac Replacement Project will improve domestic supply chains, lowering overall costs for Kansas families and businesses. U.S. Rep. Sharice Davids comments, “When we make targeted investments in local infrastructure, our communities become safer, more efficient and better equipped to handle future economic development and job growth”.
