Problem:

The concrete surface of the scale suffered severe damage due to the heavy traffic, weather conditions and leaking of fuel, oil etc. Customer needed to address this problem, but due to intensive production it was impossible to put the truck scale out of use for more than a day or two. Belzona offered to repair the most damaged parts of the scale (where the reinforcement bars are exposed), as a first phase, with possibility to resurface the whole scale in the next phase.
