Belzona Facts:

Clarifier’s walls are approximately 50’ tall. The choice of Belzona® 1121 (Super XL-Metal) allowed for mixing of the material on the ground, with plenty of time for staff above to apply material. Welding would have been costly and time consuming. The Belzona Solution required only three days from start to finish.
