Based on Belzona track record since the 1990s, the customer opted for a carbon steel shell lined with Belzona rather than stainless steel cladding. During the 2013 inspection, it was reported that the Belzona lining was in excellent condition. Local repairs carried out during the initial application were still in very good condition with no sign of degradation.
