Food and Drink Industry Repair Composites and Coatings
Maintaining a hygienic and efficient working environment is one of the greatest challenges in the food and drink industry. With this in mind, Belzona has developed a range of high performance polymer repair composites and protective coatings which help to reduce energy consumption and increase the longevity of plant, equipment and machinery.
Belzona materials are designed to meet the challenges of this industry by curing quickly without odour, minimising downtime, labour and equipment replacement costs. Furthermore, the vast majority of our products are solvent free and many of them meet national and international standards for drinking water and food contact (NSF, WRAS, and USDA).
Repairs to pipes and tanks
Cold-curing composite repair materials including Belzona 1111 (Super Metal) can return strength to weakened or holed pipes, tanks and flanges. Our versatile solutions include bonding patches over damaged areas and the application of reinforced Belzona wraps, which are ideal for the permanent repair of low pressure, non-critical equipment. Damage including impact, corrosion, erosion and chemical attack can be safely repaired and equipment can be protected from future degradation.
Tanks or vessels, common in breweries, dairies and other sectors of the food and drink industry can benefit from our repair and protection solutions for applications including base sealing, erosion and corrosion protection, cold plate bonding and live leak sealing.
Repair and protection of process equipment
Critical process equipment can be repaired and protected using solvent-free metal repair composites and protective coatings which will not only rebuild components to their original profile, but also will eliminate galvanic corrosion.
Damaged pumps and heat exchangers can be restored to their original profile using Belzona cold-curing metal repair composites. Accurate reformation of areas such as wearing seats on pumps can be undertaken using the multi-purpose Belzona 1111 (Super Metal).
Protective coatings such as Belzona 1341 (Supermetalglide) are then applied to provide erosion and corrosion protection and will reduce energy consumption, offer excellent chemical resistance and lower maintenance costs.
Roof repair and protection
Belzona's cold-applied liquid roof membranes have been designed to effectively repair and protect all areas of damaged roofs including joints, seams, upstands, flashings and gutters. Our roofing membranes offer outstanding waterproofing and weatherproofing capabilities, ensuring long-term roof leak repair and reducing the need for expensive replacement and disruptive structural work.
Our liquid-applied roof coatings, such as Belzona 3111 (Flexible Membrane) are proven to offer protection for over 25 years and can be applied in dairies, distilleries, bakeries and other food manufacturing buildings without disrupting the daily operations due to their low odour.
Floor repair and protection
Our fast-curing concrete repair composites and coatings can be used to resolve issues related to impact and abrasion. Concrete and stone can be resurfaced and protected using epoxy based materials such as Belzona 4111 (Magma-Quartz), protecting them against chemical and environmental attack.
Chemical resistant coatings such as Belzona 4311 (Magma CR1) are specially designed to ensure long-term chemical protection to areas such as secondary containment areas, channels and gratings. For safety enhancement, coatings as Belzona 5231 (SG Laminate) can be utilised as they provide slip reduction flooring and are available in a range of colours to aid visibility.
Deteriorating expansion joints can be easily rebuilt using materials such as Belzona 2211 (MP Hi-Build Elastomer), which provides excellent impact and abrasion resistance.
Reforming and protecting walls
Concrete walls, chimneys and other overhead concrete surfaces can be repaired using lightweight materials such as Belzona 4141 (Magma-Build), which will reduce downtime and avoid the need for expensive structural rebuild of your facilities.
Hygienic coatings such as Belzona 5111 (Ceramic Cladding) provide long-term protection against physical, chemical and bacterial attack and can be easily applied by brush or spray with no specialist tools required. They also benefit from being easy to clean, enabling high levels of hygiene to be maintained.
