Belzona® Bridges The Gap



Water / Wastewater (WATR)



Valves, Pipes and Fittings (VPF)


Customer Location:

Wastewater treatment plant - United Kingdom


Application Date:

February 1999


Application Situation:

A new pipe work section required connecting to existing pipe work.



Having to connect new, industrial polypropylene pipe to the old iron pipe which is severely pitted, making it impossible to obtain a water tight seal for the joint sealing ring.



Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal)





Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflets VPF-1 and VPF-10.


Belzona Facts:

Due to restricted and muddy working conditions it was not possible to allow machinery to be used for this repair, therefore a hand-held angle grinder was used to prepare the surface. The Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal) made a smooth collar around the pipe thus providing a watertight seal.
