Belzona® 1321 (Ceramic S-Metal)

Concrete

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet FPA-8.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

All the steps and landings were rebuilt/coated with 1/4” of Belzona® 4111. Strips of Belzona® (Ceramic S-Metal) and coarse aggregate were applied for safety. Repouring of the steps would have been very expensive and most likely would have suffered the same problem after a period of time. After 20 years the steps and the non-skid are still in excellent condition. The photos were taken in April of 2004.
