Belzona® Rebuild Trench Drain At Paper Mill

 
 

Industry:

Pulp & Paper (PLPR)

 
 

Application:

Floor Problem Areas (FPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Paper Mill, Northern Texas, USA

 
 

Application Date:

2014

 
 

Application Situation:

Concrete holding trench drain grate had to be rebuilt in service.

 
 

Problem:

The concrete holding up the grate was so damaged that the grate fell into the trench.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 4111 (Magma-Quartz)

 

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet FPA. Loose concrete was chipped away and the edges were ground. A wood former was used to rebuild the edges to the original width and height.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

One year later, the drain is in perfect condition. A conventional repair would have cost 10 times more and eliminated the use of the next room beyond the drain for two weeks. The Belzona repair took 18 hours, including cure time.
