Application Date:

2014

Cleaner head at a paper mill.

 
 

Problem:

The cleaner head was worn out after 4 months due to the highly abrasive environment. The paper mill wanted the head to last longer.

Belzona 1311 (Ceramic R-Metal)

Steel

 
 

Application Method:

First, the head was properly blasted. The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet SHM-7. The contour area was rebuilt with Belzona 1812. Belzona 1311 was used as an adhesive to bond the tiles to the head, and Belzona 1812 was used to grout the tiles into place.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

So far, the rebuilt head has lasted 5 times longer (over 18 months) than a new head. The spare spart was rebuilt with Belzona and is still sitting on the shelf.
