Application Date:

July 2006

 
 

Application Situation:

The open drain is a general run-off for rain water on-site.

 
 

Problem:

Under heavy rain the drain leaks through the concrete base/block interface & through the porous blocks themselves.

Substrate:

Concrete

 
 

Application Method:

The application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet TCC-15. The drain was pressure washed to remove any dirt & contaminants and allowed to dry. A fillet of Belzona® 4131 was formed along the base/wall interface followed by two coats of Belzona® 5811.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona were approached to assist with this application after the company received a direct instruction from a government agency to stop the leakage as the plant was next to a river & they considered an environmental problem possible.
