Belzona® Provides Hygeine Solution For Sweet Factory

 
 

Industry:

Food & Drink (FOOD)

 
 

Application:

Floor Problem Areas (FPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Sweet manufacturer, Leeds, UK

 
 

Application Date:

June 2013

 
 

Application Situation:

Crash barrier protection equipment within the production facility.

 
 

Problem:

Due to the clients continuous approach to hygiene controls it was decided that a further step toward hygiene control was to remove as many mechanical fixings within the facility as possible as these are seen as areas where there is potential for growth of bacteria. Belzona was chosen to provide a bonding solution.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 1111(Super Metal)

 

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out using a midified version of Belzona System Leaflet FPA-11. Both the steel tiles on the floor and steel base of the crash barriers were prepared using an MBX Bristle Blaster before being bonded together using Belzona 1111. Care was taken to ensure Belzona 1111 exuded from all edges and was used to create a smooth fillet around the base.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona was selected for its high bond strength which was tested by the client to the point where, when a lateral force was applied, it resulted in the tile being forced up from the concrete it was fixed into. The bond between crash barrier base and steel tile remained intact. In addition to this, it met the criteria for hygiene requirements.
