Customer Location:

Aluminium Casting Manufacturer, N. Ireland


Application Date:

May 2008


Application Situation:

Cooling tower at this major manufacturer of Aluminium castings for the motor industry



Dosing chemicals designed to control algae growth had led to severe corrosion throughout the cooling tower, with holes occurring in places.



Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal)
Belzona 5811 (Immersion Grade)



Galvanized steel


Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflets TCC-1 & TCC-5. After removing roof and removing all the packing (used to increase surface area), Belzona® 1111 was used to bond doubler plates over holed/thinned areas before the entire surface was protected with Belzona® 5811.


Belzona Facts:

The Belzona repair and protection procedure eliminated the need to totally replace the cooling tower which would have been hugely more costly. In addition the Belzona protection system will ensure long term prtotection from future corrosion issues.
