Application Method:

Application carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflets TCC-9 & WPA-2. The deteriorated tops of the concrete wall were removed and replaced. The walls were then prepared by grit-blasting before applying the Belzona® 5111 system (tinted blue). Belzona® 4111 was used to repair the spillway.

 
 

Belzona Facts:
