Chimney Shines With Belzona® Protection

 
 

Industry:

Power (POWR)

 
 

Application:

Wall Problem Areas (WPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Powerstation, Poland

 
 

Application Date:

September, 2008

 
 

Application Situation:

120m high Powerstation chimney

 
 

Problem:

The existing coating systems had reached the end of their life and broken down resulting in an unattractive and poorly protected chimney stack. The client undertook a comparison of Belzona with a competitor.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 5111 (Ceramic Cladding)

 

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with a modified Belzona Know-How System Leaflet WPA-2. Rope Access Technicians were used in place of industrial scaffolding. The top two, most aggressively attacked bands were coated using Belzona® 5111 in red and white.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

After initial review it was noted that the Belzona® 5111 quite literaly outshone the competition. Aside from the chemical and UV resistance needed for the application, the smooth surface of Belzona® 5111 did not attract dirt and would "self clean" with rain.
