Belzona Facts:

The customer had already experienced floods in other unprotected plant rooms and knew Belzona would be able to create the necessary protection required. The Belzona® 4131 enabled the construction of a raised containment area for spills for sealing with the impermeable Belzona® 5231. This coating has the added benefit of containing a non-slip aggregate improving the safety of the plant room when floor is wet.
