Customer Location:

College, Sussex, UK

 
 

Application Date:

2012

 
 

Application Situation:

Potwash area of school kitchen.

 
 

Problem:

The College required a protective coating for the washroom area in the kitchen. The coating should be able to withstand constant immersion in water and should incorporate slip resistance

 
 

Products:

Belzona 5811 (Immersion Grade)

 

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

Application carried out in accordance with Belzona System Leaflet FPA-3 and FPA-8. The Belzona 9231 (Surefoot Aggregate) was broadcast on the surface of the Belzona 5811 to create a non-slip surface.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The existing floor coating had only been down 6 months and was failing, trapping dirt and grease and generally not very hygenic. The Belzona solution was selected as it has proven track record, could easily withstand the activity of washing 1000's of dishes a day and that when applied it doesn't give off an odour. Adding aggregate allowed a non slip surface to be created ensuring safety of the staff on what would otherwise be a very slippery floor
