Belzona Facts:

The Customer required a quick and cost effective long term solution to the serious corroison on the sheet ends. Failure to resolve the issue quickly would have lead to increased rates of corrosion and ultimately, failure to protect from water ingress.  This would not only have been damaging to the infrastucture of the building but could have also lead to slip risks on wet areas of floor inside.
