BELZONA® 4111 AFTER 15 YEARS
Industry: Buildings & Structures (BSTR)
Application: FPA-Floor Problem Areas (FPA)
Customer Location: Kiel Center in 1993, Scott Trade Center Today, St. Louis, Missouri U.S.A.
Application Date: Summer 1993
Belzona® 4111 (Magma Quartz)
Problem: The concrete floor was mistakenly poured 3/4" on top of the anchors for the hockey dasher boards (two sizes, one for the NHL, the other for Olympic events) & circus tie down anchors.
- Overall view of the floor in 1993
- Anchor points being chipped out
- Starting the repairs
- Typical Belzona anchor 2008
New construction of arena floor used for hockey and other events contained threaded anchors for sporting furniture.
Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System Leaflet FPA-10. The floor was laid out to expose the more than 700 anchor locations. The concrete chipped out to expose the anchors. Release agent treated all-thread was used to form anchor thread in the Belzona® 4111.
There was no other easy way to restore the floor quickly except replace the entire floor. Previous experience with the building manager & the NHL at another St. Louis location proved that Belzona® 4111 would work. Time was short so that a fast solution was needed to meet the buildings opening schedule. Anchors are still effective 15 years on.
