With all outstanding features of factory isolation of pipes (high protective properties, increase of rates of construction) which are available today, there are certain problems connected with the necessity of isolation of welded joints in route conditions. Thus it is desirable to receive the quality of isolation of a zone of welded joints close to that of the basic factory coating. In the present article questions of development of materials which can be used for anticorrosive protection of a zone of welded joints of pipelines are considered.
