Fusion-Bonded Epoxy Coatings and Linings for Steel Water Pipe and Fittings
This is an American Water Works Association(AWWA) standard. FBE coatings is mainly used on steel water pipes and fittings, for example the SSAW pipes, ERW pipes, LSAW pipes seamless pipes, elbows, tees, reducers etc. for the purpose of corrosion protection.
Fusion-bonded epoxy coatings are one part dry-powder thermosetting coatings that, when heat activated, produce a chemical reaction to the steel pipe surface while maintaining the performance of its properties. Since 1960 on, application have expanded to larger pipe sizes as internal and external coatings for gas, oil, water and wastewater applications.
