Wall Problem Areas (WPA)


Customer Location:

Apartment Complex, Gold Coast, Australia


Application Date:

May 2014


Application Situation:

Concrete balcony at a residential apartment complex



The original concrete was starting to degrade due to a combination of its prominent coastal location and incorrect positioning of the steel reinforcement during original construction. Carbonation had taken place causing corrosion of the reinforcement steel leading to concrete spalling.



Belzona 4111 (Magma Quartz)





Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona System leaflet WPA-4. All areas of damaged concrete were removed back to a sound substrate after which the exposed reinforcement bars were also cleaned back to bright metal. The entire area was then coated with Belzona 4911 (TX Conditioner) before the area was rebuilt with Belzona 4111. Some temporary shuttering to help support the repair whilst it cured was installed. once cured, the shuttering was removed and the area painted to leave a pleasing aesthetic finish.


Belzona Facts:

Belzona 4111 was chosen for its superior properties over conventional repair methods. Being a fast curing, non shrinking and impermeable layer that allows for a quick easy repair that also prevents a recurrence of the initial problem.
