Online PR News – 19-July-2012 – Harrogate, North Yorkshire – Belzona aims to protect the environment through both its internal controls and by the work it does to assist other organisations in meeting their environmental responsibilities. Throughout Belzona’s history, the company has been at the forefront of addressing environmental issues through the conservation of plant and equipment and energy efficient measures in order to assist its customers with meeting their environmental goals.

As a global manufacturer of protective coatings and repair composites. Belzona is acutely aware of the need to meet environmental responsibilities. The attainment of the ISO 14001:2004 accreditation provided verification of current achievements and dedication for future environmental initiatives.

In addition to the organisation’s own environmental measures, Belzona manufactures products and solutions that are specifically designed to help its customers lower their total operation cost, increase plant efficiency and improve environmental compliance. Belzona can help organisations meet their environmental objectives by extending the service life of machinery and equipment, with considerable savings in energy costs when compared with refabrication.

From damaged pumps to corroded heat exchangers, Belzona strive to provide its customers with increased energy efficiency. By way of example, it is common for the efficiency of a worn pump to deteriorate in performance by over 10%. By rebuilding a pump with one of Belzona’s ceramic filled metal repair products and coating with Belzona 1341 (Supermetalglide), efficiency gains of up to 20% can be achieved.

The high solar reflectance and ability to emit any collected heat has qualified Belzona 3111 (Flexible Membrane), a multi-surface waterproofing roofing membrane, to meet requirements of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR program. In addition, as this product is water-based the product is very safe to use and produces minimal VOC’s.
Belzona solutions can also act as pollution control systems. Pipes and hoses, areas of corrosion under insulation (CUI) and chemical containment areas are prone to leaks which if left untreated can result in potential environmental damage. Belzona’s cold applied solutions offer a reliable leak repair solution, which will ensure the long term protection of buildings, structures, machinery and equipment.

By choosing Belzona’s repair, protect and improve approach, the need to replace equipment also reduces waste in terms of scrap metal and rubber. For further information on how Belzona can help you meet your environmental responsibilities please visit www.belzona.co.uk
