Dura-Base Mats Interlock For Taxi Aprons and Parking Areas 

The Boeing KC-135E Stratotanker is an aerial refueling tanker used by US Air Force that can weigh up to 135 tonne when fully loaded.

Dura-Base composite mats supported operational demand for taxi aprons and parking areas for the aircrafts, including the KC-135E, used during military exercises.

The 105mm thickness of Dura-Base, along with its interlocking mechanism, took on the demanding pressures from high volumes of military aircraft.

The positions for the interlocking pinholes supports multiple configurations which allowed for the taxiway layout to change as needed.
