flangeDOTS® +VCI – Self Adhesive Flange Protection

flangeDOTS® are adhesive flange protectors that hold up to the most aggressive blast medias. They also keep unwanted contamination out of all your piping components. flangeDOTS®+VCI can be installed and removed quickly. And there's more!

They have a water-based adhesive that is safe to use on all grades of steel and specialty metals including stainless steel. They are precision cut to fit the raised face surface and give you a clean paint edge. And there is just one more thing, we have added a VCI additive to the adhesive to keep the flange face from rusting.

Beneficial for short-term storage, we believe flangeDOTS® +VCI are the most effective adhesive flange protector on the market today. These self adhesive protectors can be used for long-term preservation but they must be combined with our flangeBUMPERS and multiNUTS to create an air-tight, water-tight seal on the flange face.

    flangeDOTS® are a flexible self-adhesive Flange Protector designed to protect the gasket surface area of a raised face flange during sand, bead and shot blasting and painting. They also keep the inside of the pipe spools, valves and vessels free of blast and paint debris during the blasting, painting and coating process.

    We have tested flangeDOTS® with wind speed well over 100 MPH and find that our product will stay attached firmly.

    No, flangeDOTS® are designed as a peel and stick product. You just install it to a clean dry surface and it’s ready for blast and paint.

    Yes, flangeDOTS® are designed to be a Peel and Stick Adhesive Flange Protector with a proprietary pressure sensitive adhesive. You just remove the backer, align to the raised surface area of the flange and stick it. This will save countless hours in application time over conventional masking methods using layers and layers of tape and then trimming the tape to the raised surface area of the flange.

    flangeDOTS® peel off with relative ease and leave no glue residue behind. Compared to traditional masking methods like duct tape that leave large amounts of glue and residue behind, costing you additional time and money to clean the flange surface, flangeDOTS® will speed up your process and put more money on your bottom line.
