Belzona Facts:

Because the floors were constantly wet, there was always a threat that a serious accident could take place at any moment. A non-slip coating had been applied to other areas of the kitchen floor but this had proved to be ineffective over the long term. The coating had also started to loose adhesion in various places increasing the possibility of bacteria growth between it and the tiles beneath.
