Customer Location:

Power Plant, Missouri, USA

 
 

Application Date:

March 2015

 
 

Application Situation:

Chemical Bund around 93% Sulfuric Acid Tank

 
 

Problem:

The bund in place to contain spillages from a 93% sulfuric acid tank experienced splashes and spills, resulting in the failure of existing protection. In addition, structural movement resulted in small gaps forming between the floor and bottom of the wall inside the containment area.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 4361

 

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet TCC-15.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

After assessing the problem, the local Belzona Distributor proposed to use Belzona 4361 due to its excellent chemical resistance, flexibility and good adhesion, facilitating long-term sealing between the wall and the floor. The application was carried out in March 2015 and inspected after 9 months with Belzona protection fully intact.
