Composites and Coatings for the Food and Drink Industry

Belzona repair composite materials and hygienic coatings for the repair and protection of areas such as roofs, concrete constructions, walls and other equipment found in the food and drink industry.

Composites and Coatings for the Food and Drink Industry

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 and 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).

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 protect roofs for over 25 years and can be applied in dairies, distilleries, bakeries and other food manufacturing buildings without disrupting the daily operations due to its low odour.

Concrete and stone repair and protection

Our fast-curing epoxy 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.

Our range of chemical resistant epoxy 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.

Repair of damaged and worn walls

Worn and damaged concrete walls, chimneys and 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. Leaking expansion joints can be easily rebuild using materials such as Belzona 2211 (MP Hi-Build Elastomer), which provides excellent tear, impact and abrasion resistance.

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.

Repairs to pipes and tanks

Belzona provides cold metal bonding solutions as an alternative to welding for deteriorated and holed equipment such as pipes and flanges, which can be safely and easily carried out in situ. Damage including impact and frost, corrosion, erosion and chemical attack can be safely repaired and equipment can be protected from future degradation. Leaking pipes can be easily sealed using pipe wrapping techniques with Belzona 1111 (Super Metal).

Tanks or vessels used in breweries and other sectors of the food and drink industry can benefit from our metal repair composites and epoxy coatings such as base sealing, erosion and corrosion protection, cold plate bonding and live leak sealing.
