Brick factory, Kent, England.


Application Date:

September 2013


Application Situation:

Primary conveyor delivering clay into the building from the quarry.



After years of use the belt had developed a tear and clay was penetrating the layers in the belt, if the belt was to deteriorate further the factory would need to employ an unplanned shutdown.



Belzona® 2311 (SR Elastomer)





Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How system leaflet SHM-1, the tear was patched using Belzona® 2311 incorporating Belzona® 9341 (reinforcement tape).


Belzona Facts:

The application was finished in 1 hour and the conveyor was back in service with minimal delay, usually the company would call in a specialist vulcanizer halting production for hours, the cost to replace the belt was thousands and a vulcanized repair would have cost £1300.00, the Belzona repair cost less than £100.00 and saved the company thousands in lost production.
