Belzona 1511 (Super HT-Metal)

- Condition of the tank
- Tank after grit-blasting
- Bonding metal patches using Belzona 1511

Purge tank with hot water.
The application was carried out in accordance to modified versions of Belzona's Know-How System Leaflets TCC-1 and TCC-15.
The use of Belzona to bond patches over most affected sections proved to be quicker and easier to do than welding. Replacing the tank would have been almost impossible due to costs.
