Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet ENC-1.


Belzona Facts:

Belzona was chosen as being the quickest, simplest and cheapest method of conducting the repair. Other alternatives would have involved welding, which the client did not want to pursue due to the age of the casting. The repair needed to be carried out quickly as the car was to go on show the following day. The total cost was around £15 ($28) to complete.
