Steel Industry – Repair Composites and Coatings
Belzona repair composites, coatings and linings are specifically formulated to repair and protect plant and equipment faced with the aggressive demands of the steel industry.
From rolling mills to blast furnaces, critical equipment in the steel industry is susceptible to abrasion, erosion, corrosion and chemical attack. Metal repair composites, erosion corrosion resistant coatings and durable linings have been engineered to meet the aggressive demands of this industry.
Belzona's solutions can be applied in situ and offer unmatched performance in tough application areas. Our materials have been proven to reduce downtime and labour costs as well as increase the efficiency of the plant and ensure environmental compliance.
Fluid and gas handling equipment
Metal repair composites can be used to protect equipment from the effects of erosion and corrosion. Simple, cold applied metal plate bonding techniques are often utilised to repair damaged pipework, using Belzona composites such as Belzona 1111 (Super Metal) and Belzona 1212 as bonding agents.
Our cold cure pipe wraps can be used to solve pipework problems and provide long-term erosion and corrosion protection. Where ISO 24817 and ASME PCC2 compliance is required, Belzona SuperWrap II, can be used to return strength to weakened or holed metallic surfaces whilst providing excellent corrosion protection and chemical resistance. Our fast curing emergency leak sealing systems, such as Belzona 1212 can instantly stem leaking water or gas lines preventing potentially costly implications.
Belzona solvent free materials are widely used on other equipment, such as multi-stage pumps, heat exchangers, condensers and gas scrubbers.
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 vulcanization. Versatile, multipurpose 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 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 the fast-cure Belzona 1212 eliminates the need for hot work, greatly reducing health and safety concerns. Tank bases can be sealed with our solvent-free coatings, such as Belzona 3111 (Flexible Membrane), which allow trapped moisture to escape whilst preventing water ingress at the tank base, ensuring 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. 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 coatings, such as Belzona 4311 (Magma CR1), 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, 100% solids 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.
Precise alignment and anchorage of heavy equipment can be achieved using the chocking, backing and levelling compound Belzona 7111 (Industrial Grade). This pourable material resists pressure, impact and vibrations, providing a reliable foundation for heavy machinery and equipment.
Belzona provides a cost-effective solution to maintenance problems by minimising downtime, labour, and equipment replacement costs, whilst simultaneously optimising the efficiency and reliability of facility assets. We 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
