Belzona® Upgrades Mortuary Floor

 
 

Industry:

Buildings & Structures (BSTR)

 
 

Application:

Centrifugal Pumps (CEP)

 
 

Customer Location:

Hospital Mortuary, Glasgow

 
 

Application Date:

March 2008

 
 

Application Situation:

The customer required the lifting of the existing floor system and repairing the damaged floor areas, followed by an over-coat of a positive grip system.

 
 

Problem:

As the floor was regularly washed down, it had caused the floor to become damaged and uneven causing water to gather in certain areas.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 4131 (Magma Screed)

Belzona® 5231 (SG Laminate)

 

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflets FPA-1 & 8. The Belzona® 4131 was first applied for the repairs to the bases of examination tables, and following this, a dark grey Belzona® 5231 with 15% grey aggregate was applied to give the positive traction system the customer required.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The whole application was carried out over one weekend. The low odour, solvent free Belzona products did not impact on the normal activities of the hospital. The Belzona system has provided the hospital with a hygenic, safe and hard wearing floor in the mortuary.
