Application was carried out in accordance with a modified version of the Belzona Know-How System Leaflet TCC-5.
Seven months into the service life of the Belzona coating system, an adjacent fire damaged the top conical sections. Upon closer inspections, it was concluded that the interior walls were intact, and fully operational. The top section was repaired, and ultimately, coated once again with Belzona® 5811.
