Application:

Floor Problem Areas (FPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

U.S. Coast Guard

 
 

Application Date:

July 2006

 
 

Application Situation:

Two old shower stalls on the boat allowed water to seep behind the stall walls rusting a 24" x 4" hole in the deck & leaked water into the engine room. The bulkhead was rusting badly as well

 
 

Problem:

This job had to be completed the same day problem identified so that the boat could sail on time.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 4111 (Magma Quartz)
 

Substrate:

Steel deck & bulkhead

 
 

Application Method:

Belzona® 4111 applied in accordance with Belzona System Leaflet FPA-1 & the new shower base & sides installed in front of the repair while the material was still wet.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The expensive alternative was to cut out a large chunk of deck plate & bulkhead and weld in new pieces. There was not enough time for this and the expense would have been high.
