Belzona Facts:

The Belzona 3131 system is a cold applied liquid solution that provides a seamless membrane across the complete roof, no matter how detailed. A further benefit is that the Belzona 3131 has very good adhesion directly to the asphalt, which reduces the number of coats required and the overall contract costs. The reinforced system is very durable providing a long service life. The client was delighted, stating that… “It was by far the most cost effective solution offered”.
