CHIMNEY SHINES WITH BELZONA PROTECTION
Industry: Power (POWR)
Application: WPA-Wall Problem Areas (WPA)
Customer Location: Powerstation, Poland
Application Date: September, 2008
Belzona® 5111 (Ceramic Cladding)
Problem: The existing coating systems had reached the end of their life and broken down resulting in an unattractive and poorly protected chimney stack. The client undertook a comparison of Belzona with a competitor.
- September 2008 pre works
- Application underway via rope access
- Completed application
- The top two, shiny bands are Belzona® 5111
- Review in 2010 - note the top two bands are still shiny
120m high Powerstation chimney
Application was carried out in accordance with a modified Belzona Know-How System Leaflet WPA-2. Rope Access Technicians were used in place of industrial scaffolding. The top two, most aggressively attacked bands were coated using Belzona® 5111 in red and white.
After initial review it was noted that the Belzona® 5111 quite literaly outshone the competition. Aside from the chemical and UV resistance needed for the application, the smooth surface of Belzona® 5111 did not attract dirt and would "self clean" with rain.
