Belzona Facts:

Belzona® 4111 (Magma Quartz) was mechanically mixed after the damaged areas were prepared and thoroughly condi-tioned. The repair material was hand applied and accelerated with infrared lighting to sufficiently cure in the scheduled four-hour downtime. Nine other repair materials were tried, but all failed because of a combination of slow cure times and poor adhesion characteristics.
