Belzona's Repair Allows For A Quick Return To Operation



Pulp & Paper (PLPR)



Floor Problem Areas (FPA)


Customer Location:

Texas, USA


Application Date:

September 2014


Application Situation:

Baler loader at a busy recycling paper mill.



The concrete floor had begun to wear away due to abrasion from forklifts sliding bales into the conveyer. The steel was also excessively worn, causing a 2" lip for the bales to overcome. 



Belzona 4911 (Magma TX Conditioner)
Belzona 4131 (Magma-Screed)



Concrete and Steel


Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with a modified version of Belzona Know-How System Leaflet FPA-1. The surface was diamond ground to a 3-4 mil profile. Belzona 4911 was then applied to the area. Belzona 4131 was built up to the same steel level using a screed bar.


Belzona Facts:

The concrete would have needed to be cut out and poured, needing a week or more of labor and 28 days for full cure. The steel plate needed to be replaced, which would increase downtime. Belzona was able to complete the application in an 8 hour shutdown and have operations running 24/7 again.
