Application Date:

June 2008


Application Situation:

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.
