Sandstone Mullion Repairs With Belzona

 
 

Industry:

Buildings & Structures (BSTR)

 
 

Application:

Wall Problem Areas (WPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Private Householder, Scotland

 
 

Application Date:

July 2003

 
 

Application Situation:

Householder had a problem of cracks in the sandstone Mullions of his bay windows.

 
 

Problem:

The cracks were getting worse due to frost damage in the winter months and previous attempts at concrete repairs had failed at the bond lines.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 4141 (Magma Build)

 

Substrate:

Red Sandstone

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet WPA-4. The cracks were opened out and filled prior to the whole mullion being skimmed with Belzona® 4141 tinted to match the colour. The original grooving on the stone was replicated in the Belzona® 4141.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

If the Mullions had not been repaired then it would have resulted in them becoming unstable. Traditional repair Methods had failed and replacement units were unavailable.
