Customer Location:

Manufacturing Plant, Scotland

 
 

Application Date:

October 2014

 
 

Application Situation:

Several valley gutters constructed from cast steel had begun to leak from the joints. These leaks were causing damage to the stored materials below.

 
 

Problem:

Full replacements of the gutter would have caused excessive disruption to the working areas below.

Cast iron

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet RPA-6.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona 3131, a liquid applied membrane, allowed the applicators to coat the existing substrate without removing large sections of the roof. The Belzona 3131 system is flexible, which has allowed a long lasting repair over the problem joints where competitor materials had failed.
