Belzona Facts:

This vessel had originally been repaired and protected with Belzona in 1996 and much of the coating was still in place five years later. Because of corrosion from the inside sections of the nozzles they needed to be replaced. Once this was completed customer insisted that the welded areas be faired in with Belzona® 1311 and the nozzles protected with Belzona® 1321.
