Belzona® Repairs And Protects The Roof Of A Glass Factory

 
 

Industry:

Buildings & Structures (BSTR)

 
 

Application:

Roof Problem Areas (RPA)

 
 

Customer Location:

France

 
 

Application Date:

September 2018

 
 

Application Situation:

The roof of a perfume bottle manufacturer in North of France

 
 

Problem:

The customer noticed several leaks in the building roof. As they were planning to invest in internal renovations, they wanted to make sure that this investment would not be jeopardised by a leaky roof. This building had to be protected quickly from rain and snow during Autumn/Winter season.

 
 

Products:

Belzona 3111 (Flexible Membrane)

 

Substrate:

EPDM membrane

 
 

Application Method:

The whole roof surface was pressured washed, then Belzona 3111 was used with reinforcement sheets on the welds and junctions of the original EPDM membrane. After ensuring that all potential problem areas were encapsulated, a two coat system of Belzona 3111 was applied over the whole roof. The first coat was hand applied and the second one applied with an airless spray gun.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

The customer was familiar with Belzona due to a previous application. The application on 600-650sqm only took 5 days and only required 3 people. A traditional roof cover system would have costed the customer twice the price and would have been longer to install compare to this Belzona membrane solution
