Ground Control trial innovative solutions to prepare for a change in season


Ground Control have been working alongside HITEK-nology Solutions to protect our gritting fleet from corrosion

As well as being leaders in technology for delivering winter maintenance solutions with our innovative real time technology, Ground Control  has teamed up with HITEK-nology solutions to trial their innovative protective coating systems to protect our large fleet of vehicles whilst they are in summer storage.

These innovative preventative solutions are designed to save time and money, as well as being environmentally friendly and bio-degradable.

The coatings are applied via jet wash onto the vehicles, leaving a white film to allow operators to ensure an even distribution before drying clear.

The product range also includes ‘vapour emitters’. When placed in the vehicle these produce a protective vapour which offers continuous corrosion protection of components. These can be left in position for up to two years, offering long lasting rust and corrosion protection.

The electrical components are treated using an aerosol applied liquid, specially designed to treat wiring and known problem areas such ABS sensors.

HITEK-nology has long been associated with military machinery protection and Ground Control is delighted by the helpful, professional assistance and advice provided by Mark Cresswell, Operations Director at HITEK-nology.
