Application Situation:

Steel corrugated pitched roof with large channel gutters running the length of the roof. The roof had several pipe penetrations, ventilation ducts and rooflights.

 
 

Problem:

New extension was suffering from leaks due to attack from bird litter and excrement which was chemically attacking the plastic coated steel sections.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 3111 (Flexible Membrane)

 

Substrate:

Plastic coated steel sheet.

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflets RPA-1 & -6.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The original roof was completed in 1990 by the local Authorized Contractor. It was possible to see corrosion as a result of bird litter on sheets of the new extension but on the Belzona® 3111 Membrane System it has had no effect on performance although a wash would make it more aesthetically pleasing. As a result of the success on the original roof, the extended building was then encapsulated and the existing system refurbished to provide a further 15 years life.
