Ebonite and steel


Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet TCC-3. The surface was prepared removing the previous mastic products. Then, the ebonite was roughened using a grinder and the whole application area was grit blasted to ensure a minimum 75 micron surface profile on the exposed steel before rebuilding all damaged areas with the Belzona® 4301.


Belzona Facts:

This application was carried out in-situ, repairing the ebonite lining without the requirement of a vulcanization process, and minimising downtime and disruptions to the client facilities and operations.
