Belzona Facts:

The floor was soaked with pecan oil making the application very difficult. A detergent wash was used on the floor followed by an odorless degreaser followed by mechanical abrasion. This was followed by another degreasing. The pecan factory was so pleased with these initial repairs that they purchased additional material and continue to address other floor problem areas as they arise. After several years all repairs are holding up very well.
