Belzona Facts:

Due to the extended time after alignment/sealing to the bonding phase nitrogen was used to prevent flash rusting in the void to be filled with the Belzona® 5811. To combat the very cold conditions in the North Sea, January (0°C) heat blankets were used to allow the works to be completed.
