Belzona® Protects Against Hot Sulphuric Acid



Petrochemical (PETR)



Tanks and Chemical Containment Areas (TCC)


Customer Location:

Chemical Company, Warrington, UK


Application Date:

September 2014


Application Situation:

Tile and brick chemical containment bund.



The tiles were on the base of the bund and a couple of inches up the walls. As the standing water levels were above the tiles, it was leaking through the bricks. The tank inside was storing 77% sulphuric acid at 70°C. It was therefore decided to coat the bund.



Belzona 4131 (Magma-Screed)

Belzona 4341 (Magma CR4)



Tile and Brick


Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet TCC-15. Belzona 4131 was used to create fillets at the horizontal and vertical junctions before Belzona 4341 was applied to protect the entire area.


Belzona Facts:

The entire application was completed in 5 days. Despite the harsh conditions Belzona 4341 can resist high concentrations of sulphuric acid up to 90°C. As Belzona products are non-porous, this eradicates the problems that could be incurred through acid leakage.
