Customer Location:

Aluminum Plant in Quebec, Canada

 
 

Application Date:

1990

 
 

Application Situation:

Protection of hinged conveyor belt fasteners.

 
 

Problem:

Abrasion of the conveyor belt fasteners caused premature failure and unscheduled downtime of the belt carrying coal from barges into the plant where the metal impurities are separated out.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 2211 (MP Hi-Build)

Belzona® 2911 (QD Conditioner)

Rubber

 
 

Application Method:

Belzona Facts:

A side by side comparison of Belzona versus an imitation product was done at this facility, and the Belzona lasted three years while the competition failed after one week. Eventually the scraper arm was tightened down too close and wore away the Belzona repair.
