Belzona® Resolves Water Ingress Issues For Food Supplier

 
 

Industry:

Food & Drink (FOOD)

 
 

Application:

Roof Problem Areas (RPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Food supplier, Worcester, UK

 
 

Application Date:

September 2012

 
 

Application Situation:

Flat roof over chilled food processing plant.

 
 

Problem:

Months of inclement weather had resulted in several cracks in the felt roof, leaking gutters and damage to the parapet walls, each resulting in leakage through into the packing area below.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 3131 (WG Membrane) 

 

Substrate:

Felt

 
 

Application Method:

   The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona System Leaflets RPA-1, RPA-6 and RPA-11. After carrying out thorough surface preparation including removing all loose substrate matter and treating with a fungicidal wash, a fully reinforced Belzona 3131 system was then brush applied to the entire roof area.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The client also requested an emergency walkway be created on the roof to provide its operatives with safe access where necessary. A third coat of Belzona 3131 (WG Membrane) was applied, this time incorporating Belzona 9221 (Surefoot Aggregate). This simple solution created a safe, durable and long lasting emergency walkway.
