Belzona Facts
The customer chose Belzona since a competitor's solution required spray application by a special application team, leading to long shutdowns and increased costs.

The system can also be easily resealed by their own maintenance personnel on site, keeping additional costs down. Belzona 3411 also provides excellent corrosion, UV and weather resistance.
