RitecRetrospective: Suvarnabhumi Airport, Thailand

Suvarnabhumi Airport, unofficially referred to as Bangkok Airport, is one of the biggest international airports in Southeast Asia and a regional hub for aviation. It is the 17th busiest airport in the world, eleventh busiest airport in Asia, and the busiest in the country. It also serves as a major air cargo hub.

Prior to the airport’s opening in 2006, award-winning Ritec ClearShield® ‘non-stick’, easy clean glass surface protection was specified.

Ritec ClearShield® is a unique glass surface treatment. It was applied to some 100,000m² of new glass prior to the airport’s construction, helping to protect against harsh contaminants such as cement, concrete and construction dust as well as any run-off during installation. As the treated glass meant any contamination was easier to remove from the glass, it helped reduce costs and delays during its construction.

As ClearShield® has proven durability, the treated glass resisted staining from jet exhaust fumes and other contaminants as well as remaining easier to clean for many years after the airport’s opening.
