Two new power generation-focused products, Belzona® 5831 (ST-Barrier) and 1831 (Super UW-Metal), were formulated to provide solutions primarily for prolonged prevention against corrosion under insulation. They're able to displace moisture and hydrocarbons from a substrate thus freeing it for bonding. This allows both products to bond to substrates that can't be dried or cleaned such as leaking transformer flanges. Belzona Inc., Miami, FL, 305-594-4994,
