These bakeries run 24 hours a day. One reason Belzona® 4111 was chosen is it has no offensive odor. The repair started around noon and finished by 2:00 p.m., allowing plenty of time for the Belzona® 4111 to cure before the next scheduled bakery shift at 2:00 a.m. the next morning. No odor was detected at 2:00 a.m. A total of 12 store proofing boxes were done.
