Pipe Flange Encapsulation Corrosion Protection Services
Pipe flanges are susceptible to corrosion due to chemical reactions, exposure to harsh environmental factors, and mechanical wear. To prevent leaks and other corrosion-related damages, Banks Industrial Group (BIG) offers pipe flange encapsulation corrosion protection services.
Our team uses Belzona 3411, a two-component epoxy composite that offers:
Reliable protection against corrosion and erosion
High compressive strength
Belzona 3411 provides a rubber-like coating that can be cut and peeled back for maintenance inspections and then easily resealed with more of the same product. This makes maintenance faster and less expensive as you won't need to completely replace the encapsulation. With Belzona 3411, our team can provide long-term corrosion protection, prevent expensive repairs, reduce operational downtime, and protect worker safety.

Pipe Flange Corrosion Can Lead to System Failure, Downtime and Workplace Safety Hazards
Pipe flanges are susceptible to corrosion damage due to the infiltration and collection of moisture and atmospheric contaminants. Such corrosion is hard to detect and adversely affects the reliability of your system. Without protection, corrosion increases your risk of:
General safety hazards
Conventional flange protectors include hard coatings, covers, clamps, tapes, thermoplastics, and VCI bags. All of these solutions exhibit shortcomings when considering the balance between protection, maintenance requirements, and ease of inspection.
Many of these methods also require time-consuming re-application or replacement after installation. Re-application increases maintenance costs and lengthens shutdown duration. In other cases, these methods can fail to provide long-term corrosion protection.
Pipe Flange Encapsulation Protects Your System Against Corrosion and Saves Maintenance Costs
Belzona 3411 peelable and resealable flange protectors offer excellent corrosion protection and simple installation. With Belzona 3411, you can completely encapsulate any shape, size, or configuration of flanged joints.
Our pipe flange encapsulation system protects the flange joint with an inner corrosion-inhibiting layer while the outer elastic barrier seals out external moisture and environmental contaminants. The 3411 pipe flange encapsulation system is tough and flexible with high bonding strength and UV- / environmental-weathering resistance. The product installs safely and easily without the need for hot work or specialist tools.
The Belzona flange encapsulation system allows for easy maintenance access—just cut it with a knife and peel it back. Afterward, fold the membrane back into position and quickly reseal with a small quantity of 3411. This painless process helps improve asset reliability by expediting maintenance inspections.
