Carbon Steel

 
 

Application Method:

Belzona Facts:

The customer chose Belzona since a competitor's solution required spray application by a special application team, leading to long shutdowns and increased costs. The customer chose Belzona 3411 as the system is quick and simple to use and can be easily peeled away, allowing easy access to flange fastenings. The system can also be easily resealed by their own maintenance personnel on site, keeping additional costs down. Belzona 3411 also provides excellent corrosion, UV and weather resistance.
