Belzona® Repairs Concrete Ramp

 
 

Industry:

Buildings & Structures (BSTR)

 
 

Application:

Floor Problem Areas (FPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Bellingham, WA, USA

 
 

Application Date:

September 2014

 
 

Application Situation:

Cracking on an important loading ramp

 
 

Problem:

The foundation under the loading ramp had been undermined causing one concrete panel to crack which made a bump in the road for forklifts, which would then lose loads when hitting this joint.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 4111 (Magma Quartz)

 

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

The appliaction was carried in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet FPA-1. The substrate was thoroughly cleaned and loose material removed.  A Teflon spacer was placed into the joint to separate adjacent panels thus avoiding a repeat of cracking that had occurred. The Conditioner was brush applied and Belzona 4111 was hand applied.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The Customer had tried other materials with limited success and wanted a sure solution without a need to re-apply prematurely - hence Belzona was selected.
