Application Situation:

This ebonite covered roll on the Carpet Loom supports the carpet as it passes over the Latex Applicator Roll that coats the back of the Carpet with latex.

The ebonite had suffered from localised wear and was not readily repairable. In fact the original manufacturer did not recomend repair of this material

 
 

Products:

Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal)

 

Substrate:

Steel & Ebonite

 
 

Application Method:

Application was carried out in accordance with a modified version of Belzona Know-How System TCC-3. Ebonite was cut back to a sound edge and after roughening exposed steel and surrounding Ebonite, Belzona® 1111 was applied and then finished to profile using sa template cut from a Belzona Mixing Board.

 
 

Belzona Facts:

Belzona was the only viable repair method. Alternative was to buy new Roll which is expensive and on a long lead time.
