Belzona® Surfaced Track Of Settlement Basin Passes The Test

 
 

Industry:

Water / Wastewater (WATR)

 
 

Application:

Floor Problem Areas (FPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Germany

 
 

Application Date:

Autumn 2010

 
 

Application Situation:

Tracks of 3 primary settlement basins (total length: 324 m; width 600 mm)

 
 

Problem:

Scraper wheels and weather had caused wear to the concrete.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 4111 (Magma-Quartz)

Belzona® 5811 (Immersion Grade) 

 

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflets FPA-1 & 8. After preparing the top of the walls with a milling machine, the substrate was rebuilt and levelled with Belzona® 4111. The thickness varied between 2 and 50 mm. To provide additional traction for the wheels, Belzona® 5811 was applied and Belzona® 9211 added to the surface to provide a positive grip system.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The customer had previously tried to patch repair the track using steel fibre reinforced concrete, which, however, delaminated quickly. Subsequent repairs with other construction products equally failed. Even after the very hard winter of 2010/2011, the Belzona system is still in excellent condition thanks to its ability to withstand frost and subzero service conditions. The satisfied customer has commissioned further repairs on steps and plinths.
