Belzona Facts
The customer is a long term good customer. However, it was necessary to convince them to buy a coating almost three times more expensive than the previous coatings. They were convinced that the coating lasts longer (Belzona 5111 has a very high albedo – 0.89 thanks to which it reflects a significant part of solar radiation) and that the Belzona 5111 coating will be clean for longer and very visible.
