Belzona Facts
Every support is "connected" with pipe line via the slide assembly. The slide assembly needed to be fixed to the pipeline. Belzona® 1111 provides high strength bond without the need for hotwork, allowing work to progress without disrupting gas supplies. Since 1998, 5 such bridges have had supports bonded with Belzona without a single problem in that time.
