Customer Location:

Wastewater treatment plant in Plantation, Florida USA

 
 

Application Date:

May 1999

 
 

Application Situation:

80-ft diameter concrete clarifier trough.

 
 

Problem:

An old coal tar epoxy system had failed and resulted in damage to the underlying concrete. It also made it very difficult to keep the trough clean and free from algae buildup.

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 4111 (Magma Quartz)

Belzona® 5811 (Immersion Grade)

 

Substrate:

Concrete and steel

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflets TCC-9 and TCC-15.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona was specified by an engineering firm called CDM. A total of four-clarifiers were repaired at this facility. The management believes that the Belzona System makes it easier to clean and protects the trough substrate. Over three-years later, the Belzona is still providing excellent protection.
