Belzona 1151 (Smoothing Metal)



Product Description

A 2-part epoxy based repair composite for rebuilding shallow pitting in metals damaged by erosion and corrosion. This solvent-free material is specifically formulated to easily fill in areas of metal loss up to 6 mm deep, quickly restoring large areas and avoiding hot work and plate welding. Belzona 1151 (Smoothing Metal) will not corrode and will resist a wide range of chemicals.

This repair composite is ideally suited to be overcoated with epoxy coatings such as Belzona 1321 (Ceramic S-Metal) for long-term protection against the effects of erosion, corrosion and chemical attack.

Key benefits:

  • Multipurpose durable repair composite for rebuilding pitting and metal loss up to 6 mm deep
  • Application and cure at room temperature – no hot work involved
  • Excellent erosion and corrosion resistance
  • Fast cure for rapid return to service
  • Easy to mix and apply even on large areas
  • Reduced health and safety risks as it is solvent-free
  • No shrinkage, expansion or distortion
  • Excellent adhesion to metals including stainless steel, carbon steel, aluminium, brass and copper
  • Outstanding chemical resistance against a wide range of chemicals
  • Excellent electrical insulation characteristics

Applications for Belzona 1151 (Smoothing Metal) include:

  • Resurface of pitted metal surfaces in equipment such as process vessels, heat exchangers and pumps
  • Repair of cracks and holes on engine and pump casings, pipes, tanks and other equipment
  • Repair of damaged shafts and hydraulic rams
  • In-situ flange repair
  • High strength structural adhesive for metal bonding
  • Creation of irregular load bearing shims and reforming of bearing housing
