Asia-Pacific airlines had a 283.1% increase in March 2023 traffic compared to March 2022, continuing the robust momentum in the region. Melbourne Airport, the second busiest airport in Australia for passenger movements, is a part of that regional momentum.
Airport pavement and joint repair training is so critical that D.S. Brown team members have held full on-site training at busy facilities like Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) Airportto keep the infrastructure in good repair while the very active facility (73 million customers every year) remains open.

D.S. Brown’s comprehensive pavement product line has been well established not only in North America but for critical base requirements at many U.S. military facilities around the world. Meeting specific requirements as well as time-critical factors have established D.S. Brown and its pavement solutions as a leader for global partners looking for those same high-quality infrastructure solutions.
To complete a recent $4.8 million runway repair project at Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth, D.S. Brown and base teams poured 23,000 five-gallon buckets of Delpatch™ Elastomeric Concrete to reestablish 12,000 feet of runway length.
Pavement repairs always invokes questions about the best methods and materials. During the life of a pavement, several types of repairs might be necessary to maintain and preserve pavements, including spalling repairs, joint rehabilitations, lighting trench retrofits and many more.
Smaller regional airports are leveraging Delastic® Preformed Pavement Seals and their long lifespan for projects including runway reconstruction, runway rehabilitation and runway extension.
Just as Delpatch™ Elastomeric Concrete has proven to be extremely durable and cost-effective, D.S. Brown team members continue to provide timely and innovative installation solutions through online and on-site training for the polyurethane patching material.
