Belzona Facts:

The application on 70 square meters was carried out section by section, over 6 afternoons. This enabled the fish market to operate normally every day. Viable alternative were sealable strips, but they wear out very quickly in these conditions. Other alternatives included closing the market, which was unacceptable for the customer.
