Belzona® 1111 (Super Metal)

Problem: During loading and unloading, the pipework suffered from vibration. Increased frequency of loading and discharge was exacerbating the problem and structural damage was a concern. Additional supports were designed to solve problem but due to safety restrictions, no hot work was allowed. Cold bonding of additional supports using Belzona was therefore specified.
