Antimicrobial Formulations to Reduce Mold Intrusion on Airfield Markings and Pavements

The reoccurring growth of mold and continued maintenance required to prevent discoloration of airfield paint markings poses a continued problem that draws money that would otherwise be used for pavement improvements. This research will employ recent innovations in antimicrobial research to develop a quaternary ammonium compound that can be applied as a top-coat to markings and pavement surfaces whereby the modified surface will become non-leaching and exhibit contact-killing, highly-effective antimicrobial activity capable of reducing or eliminating the growth of mold on airfield safety markings and pavements.
