Belzona 4151 was then applied to provide a glossy finish.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona was able to solve a substantial problem of dry abrasion in the presence of strong concentrations of chlorides. In fact, using a carbon steel wheel coated with Belzona 1811 quadrupled component's life to 4000 hours. The original noble metal alloy wheels lasted 1000 hours in service.
