Belzona® Restores Felt Return Roll



Pulp & Paper (PLPR)



Solids Handling Machinery (SHM)


Customer Location:

Paper mill in the south of England


Application Date:

April 2001


Application Situation:

Felt return roll.



The fiberglass roll coating had worn to such an extent that the fibrous reinforcement was protruding from the surface of the coating, allowing water to ingress into the coating.



Belzona® 1321 (Ceramic S-Metal)



Fibrous reinforcement sheet


Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with a modified version of Belzona Know-How System Leaflet SHM-12.


Belzona Facts:

Belzona® 1321 was easily applied on site, leading to a quick turnaround time which was reduced the cost of the application. Due to the greater abrasion resistance of the Belzona® 1321 over fiberglass, the Belzona System has considerably extended the life of the roll.
