Belzona Facts:

The manufacturer of the plates would not supply the gaskets separately. The gaskets could only be obtained by purchasing new plates at a cost of $400 each. The dairy had eight plates (worth over $3,200) out of service, requiring gaskets immediately, plus eight more in service that would soon require new gaskets. By using Belzona, the customer saved several thousand dollars in replacement parts and kept the ice cream flowing.
