Epoxy Repair Composites and Coatings for the Steel Industry
The durable range of Belzona epoxy-based metal repair composites, high temperature coatings and linings has been engineered to meet the aggressive demands of the steel industry. Critical equipment is susceptible to a range of challenges from wear caused by abrasion, erosion, corrosion, high temperature and chemical attack.
Belzona's solutions offer unmatched performance in tough application areas which reduce downtime and labour costs as well as increasing the efficiency of the plant and ensuring environmental compliance.
Fluid and gas handling equipment
Belzona's epoxy composite materials can be used to protect equipment from the effects of erosion-corrosion. Simple, cold applied metal plate bonding techniques can be utilised to repair damaged pipework, using Belzona composites such as Belzona 1221 (Super E-Metal) and Belzona 1111 (Super Metal) as bonding agents.
Belzona cold cure pipe wraps can be used to solve pipework problems and provide long-term erosion and corrosion protection. Alternatively, the ISO 24817 and ASME PCC-2 compliant pipe wrap system, Belzona SuperWrap II, can be used to return strength to weakened or holed metallic surfaces and provide excellent corrosion protection and chemical resistance. The system is suitable for applications at various service temperatures up to 150°C (302°F).
Solids handling equipment
Ripped, worn and torn conveyor belts damaged by impact and abrasion can be repaired using flexible rubber repair materials. Belzona 2111 (D&A Hi-Build Elastomer) is ideal for restoring damaged areas to their original profile and providing outstanding protection against wear, impact and abrasion whilst eliminating the need for vulcanisation. Versatile, multi-purpose elastomers can also be used for simple, cost effective and long-lasting rubber repairs for equipment such as rubber rollers, flights, cleats and clip joints on conveyor belts and other rubber components.
Highly abrasion resistant composite materials such as Belzona 1811 (Ceramic Carbide) are widely used to resist erosion damage and wear for equipment such as screw conveyors, chutes, hoppers and pipe sections.
Storage tank and secondary containment area repair and protection
Belzona provides solutions for damaged storage tanks including emergency leak sealing and cold plate bonding, using fast-cure epoxy materials such as Belzona 1221 (Super E-Metal) and Belzona 1111 (Super Metal) that will eliminate the need for hot work, therefore reducing health and safety concerns. Tank bases can be sealed with our solvent-free coatings such as Belzona 3111 (Flexible Membrane) that will allow trapped moisture to escape whilst preventing water ingress at the tank base for long-term protection.
Concrete floors and walls of secondary containment can be repaired and protected using the range of Belzona concrete repair composites and coatings, which will greatly reduce downtime. Concrete repair products such as Belzona 4111 (Magma-Quartz) and Belzona 4141 (Magma-Build) are ideal for repair and resurfacing of damaged secondary containment areas. Epoxy floor coatings such as Belzona 4311 (Magma CR1) and Belzona 4341 (Magma CR4) are designed to provide long-term chemical resistance against a wide range of substances including acids and alkalis even at high temperatures.
Shimming of worn equipment
With excellent load bearing characteristics and no shrinkage, Belzona composite repair materials can be used to form excellent load bearing shims. These multi-purpose materials can be used on structural supports and machinery plinths as well as for accurate in-situ forming and shimming of wear plates, crane rails and rail tracks.
Belzona epoxy materials provide a cost effective solution to maintenance problems by minimising downtime, labour and equipment replacement costs, whilst at the same time, optimise the efficiency and reliability of facility assets. Belzona can provide solutions for the repair and protection of your facility including:
- Liquid-applied, flexible roof membranes for weatherproofing buildings, structures and insulation
- Concrete and stonework repair and protection systems
- Environmental barrier polymers to protect against and reduce environmental impact
- Safety surfacing polymers for the prevention of slips and to provide positive grip
