Industry:

Food & Drink (FOOD)

 
 

Application:

Floor Problem Areas (FPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

Meat Processing Plant, Florida, USA

 
 

Application Date:

December, 2017

 
 

Application Situation:

Freezer floors.

 
 

Problem:

Freezer floors have been under 24/7 heavy forklift operation and freezing conditions for more than 40 years. Some areas needed major overhaul. Major concrete damage was found on floors that are indispensable for plant operation. In addition, some localized repairs were needed all over the place. Turnaround time was also an issue with only 3 days to perform repairs.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 4154 (Bulkfill Resin) mixed with pea gravel

Belzona 4124 (Bulkfill)

Belzona 4111 (Magma-Quartz)

Belzona 4911 (Magma TX Conditioner)

 

Substrate:

40 year old concrete

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with a modified version of Belzona System Leaflet FPA-1. A slurry mix of Belzona 4154 was used to create a foundation where dirt was the substrate. Belzona 4124 was applied over to minimize the cost of deep pour. Belzona 4111 was used as a top layer because of its unique properties.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Backed by over 65 years of experience, Belzona was able to specify the appropriate materials. Belzona was chosen over a new concrete pour due to previous performance at the plant and time constraints. Belzona was able to deliver a high performance and a fully cured floor system.
