Belzona® 4111 After 15 Years

 
 

Industry:

Buildings & Structures (BSTR)

 
 

Application:

Floor Problem Areas (FPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Kiel Center in 1993, Scott Trade Center Today, St. Louis, Missouri U.S.A.

 
 

Application Date:

Summer 1993

 
 

Application Situation:

New construction of arena floor used for hockey and other events contained threaded anchors for sporting furniture.

 
 

Problem:

The concrete floor was mistakenly poured 3/4" on top of the anchors for the hockey dasher boards (two sizes, one for the NHL, the other for Olympic events) & circus tie down anchors.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 4111 (Magma Quartz)

 

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet FPA-10. The floor was laid out to expose the more than 700 anchor locations. The concrete chipped out to expose the anchors. Release agent treated all-thread was used to form anchor thread in the Belzona® 4111.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

There was no other easy way to restore the floor quickly except replace the entire floor. Previous experience with the building manager & the NHL at another St. Louis location proved that Belzona® 4111 would work. Time was short so that a fast solution was needed to meet the buildings opening schedule. Anchors are still effective 15 years on.
