Problem:

Improper installation of a casing lug for this 50cc Honda Moped stripped the aluminum housing and was unable to seal the casing properly.

Aluminum

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet ENC-2.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona® 9411 (Release Agent) was applied to the casing bolt and allowed to dry for 20-minutes. The existing thread profile was roughened and thoroughly degreased. Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal) was then applied to both surfaces and then both were introduced in the lug and centralized. Following full cure, the Belzona thread is still operating successfully after many years.
