Belzona® Makes For Better Shopping

 
 

Industry:

Buildings & Structures (BSTR)

 
 

Application:

Floor Problem Areas (FPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Spokane, WA, USA

 
 

Application Date:

September 2014

 
 

Application Situation:

Damaged concrete at a wholesale shopping store.

 
 

Problem:

Concrete floor has broken out near a relief cut. With heavy forklift traffic during overnight stocking causing the damage, it is unsafe for pedestrian traffic during business hours. Previous patch material has been used but it breaks out soon after application, causing even more damage to the concrete.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 4111 (Magma-Quartz)

 

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with a modified version of Belzona Know-How System Leaflet FPA-5 using 1" strips of a Belzona mixing board as the former to maintain the relief cut.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Existing patch materials needed to be reapplied a couple of times per year. When the existing patch material was removed, it came loose in large pieces, thus showing it had not bonded to the concrete substrate and still had a very strong chemical odor even after being applied months before. Upon opening and mixing Belzona 4111 for the repair, the customer remarked that there was no odor coming from the Belzona product. This customer is happy that they have a long-lasting solution that is easy for them to use. They will save money of repeat maintenance to the same damage.
