Application:

Gaskets, Seals and Shims (GSS)

 
 

Customer Location:

BC, Canada

Substrate:

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet GSS-8.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Restoring the flange face with Belzona 1121 allowed the process to be fast and cost effective, saving the customer from the costly replacement of a new section. Belzona repairs always provide a 100% seal and long lasting service time.
