Application Date:

May 2013

 
 

Application Situation:

Flat roof on a city centre high rise office block

 
 

Problem:

The existing roofing system had failed allowing water to leak into the offices below.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 3111 (Flexible Membrane)

 

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona System Leaflet RPA-1. Before application could commence the decorative stones had to be removed. Further inspection revealed that the existing roof membrane had perished and the decision was made to reseal the entire roof including the concrete walkways. The roof was stripped and cleaned before being over-coated with a fully reinforced Belzona 3111 system.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona 3111 was chosen for its ease of application, solvent free formulation and its ability to bond tenaciously to different substrates.
