As Belzona begins its 100-day countdown to its 70th Anniversary, this blog post shares an insight into the very beginnings of Belzona, and looks to the future environmental initiatives set to be launched on February 14th.
Series of Environmental Initiatives Set to Launch from February 14th
70 Years of Innovations in Polymeric Protective Coatings and Repair Composites
Since its inception in 1952, innovation has sat at the heart of Belzona. Thanks to the curiosity of its early-founders along with an entrepreneurial spirit, this led to the development of Belzona’s first product: a zinc, flame-sprayed solution that could be used to protect steel against the effects of corrosion.
Incredibly innovative at the time, this technique truly revolutionized the ways in which repair and maintenance procedures were carried out within industrial and commercial facilities. Indeed, this product proved to be a catalyst for a whole host of innovative repair and maintenance solutions used across a wide variety of industry and application areas to this day.
It is this very same, pioneering, entrepreneurial spirit that is inherent throughout the business, and is what has been intrinsic to Belzona’s success in penetrating numerous industries over the decades.
‘Conserving Human-Made Resources’, and Beyond
With innovation being fundamental to Belzona’s ethos, from the 70th Anniversary onwards, Belzona are extremely proud to launch a series of environmentally-focused initiatives in response to the climate challenges currently faced by the planet.
Indeed, with a business strapline of ‘Conserving Human-Made Resources’, Belzona is already in a privileged position in its ability to breathe new life into damaged assets that would otherwise be sent to landfill. Over the years, the benefits of deploying the Belzona Solution in this way, and therefore mitigating the need to dispose of and replace damaged assets, will have been astronomical from an environmental perspective.
In keeping with these environmental credentials, from February 14th onwards, Belzona is poised to make significant investments into various other aspects of the business, in order to further help support a greener future for the planet. From the development of ‘greener’ solutions, to products developed specifically for renewable energy technologies, Belzona is proud to pioneer the planet-friendly evolution of polymeric technology.
In this way, Belzona’s reputation as ‘pioneers for 70 years’, is set to be upheld for many decades to come.
