FBE: Fusion Bonded Epoxy Powder Coating FBE is a high performance anti-corrosion coating that provides excellent protection for small and large diameter pipelines with moderate operating temperatures. The thickness of the FBE coating is up to 400 microns.
Abrasive cleaning with steel grit/shot is required to achieve a surface purity grade of Sa 2 1/2 with anchor pattern of (40-90 μm). The steel must reach a temperature of 170-220Co.The FBE is deposited by an electro-static spray process. The coating cures quickly. Once cured, the pipe is cooled for safe handling and inspection. Thus it can be said that the coated pipe is ready for installation and use.
