Belzona Facilities Maintenance Customer Open is Huge Success

07 July 2010

On the 22nd June 2010 Belzona held a Facilities Maintenance Customer Open Day at their Technology Centre based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. The event was well attended by over 35 new and existing customers from around the area ranging from Facilities Managers, Estate Managers and Architects.

The aim of the open day was to give attendees a better understanding of the polymeric solutions Belzona offer to repair, protect and improve their facilities, and to educate on traditional repair methods versus using modern materials.

The agenda for the day covered a range of areas including solutions for facilities management, technology and service from Belzona and in addition, some large scale product demonstrations which have never been done in the history of Belzona! This was a great way for attendees to join in and gain experience on applying Belzona products discovering how simple they are to use. Gordon Cairns, National Sales Manager for Belzona explained, ‘The key to making the day a success is to keep each session relatively short’.

One of the most effective demonstrations titled, ‘Waterproofing with Water’ involved using a powerful hose against a wall of the Belzona building which had been partially coated with Belzona 5122 (Clear Cladding), a clear water repellent product for masonry surfaces. This demonstration showed the powerful nature of polymers that can impregnate the surface of a mineral substrate. Using water as the carrier, they are able to penetrate deep into the porosity of the substrate to form an invisible micro porous coating that will allow any moisture to escape whilst remaining completely waterproof.

To give Belzona staff and attendees a chance to network and share experiences, a summer sizzling Belzona Barbeque was held for lunch followed by a visit from the ice-cream van later in the day.

David Keen, Belzona Independent Consultant who attended the event commented, ‘

Many thanks again to all who catered, presented, demonstrated and cared for our Customers it was a job exceedingly well done!’

Belzona will be holding similar events in the near future across a range of industries including the Power industry. If you are interested in participating in a future Belzona open day, please do not hesitate to contact our Customer Services Department on 01423 567641 or alternatively . I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved. The whole day was remarkable in terms of content, layout, delivery and humour. One thing Belzona have always been good at is presenting to our customers, but Tuesday took it to a new level.
