Belzona Facts:

After pouring Belzona 7111 in four chock casings and curing, the alignment was verified within the acceptable and projected range. The process of pouring the liquid polymer offers benefits while replacing the manufacturing of metal shims that do not guarantee 100% support, are costly, needs time and corrections, which requires more days of downtime with no production and would result in a great loss in costs. Belzona 7111 has certification of Marine Classification of Lloyd’s Register and American Bureau of Shipping.
