Within the recommended overcoat time, Belzona 5111 was spray applied as the second coat.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona 6111 will not allow rust to creep at damaged areas and was applied to protect the unit from corrosion. Belzona 6111 can be sprayed or brush applied and contains 90% or more of high purity zinc content in the dry film, assuring ultimate cathodic protection. Belzona 5111 protects the unit from the abrasive action of the grit picked up off the streets. An additional benefit from using Belzona 5111 was that it aids the cleaning of the dust box after each shift. Belzona 5111 is a two-part coating designed for long term protection of metallic and non-metallic surfaces against physical, chemical and bacterial attack.
