Application Method
Application was carried out in accordance with Belzona Know-How System leaflet TCC-1. A formed section was made up. Belzona® 1111 was then applied to both surfaces and then assembled, using metal strapping to hold in place whilst the Belzona cured. Excess material was used as a fillet around the plate. After completion of cure the straps were removed.
