What is fusion bonded epoxy (FBE) coating steel pipe?

Haihao Group supplies fusion bonded epoxy(FBE) coating steel pipes with large inventory.Fusion bonded epoxy (FBE) coated pipes are used to prevent corrosion and harmful chemicals of steel pipes.

What is fusion bonded epoxy(FBE) coating:

Fusion bonded epoxy(FBE) coating generally refers to a single layer of fused epoxy coating, using fused epoxy powder coating as a film-forming material. This kind of epoxy powder coating is a kind of thermosetting coating, which is made of solid epoxy resin, curing agent and various additives through mixing and grinding.Fusion bonded epoxy (FBE) coating is a powder coating broadly used to provide protection to pipelines, steel pipes and a wide range of piping bonds.FBE Coating has been used as a standard in industries for protection against corrosion.

FBE coatings have good handling characteristics; they are flexible and resistant to soil pressure.These are used in pipeline projects that have normal requirements and do not have harsh conditions.

What is fusion bonded epoxy (FBE) coating steel pipe?

FBE coating steel pipe is fusion bonded epoxy coating steel pipe.It is a kind of external heat resin used for pipes.With a form of dry powder at thickness 400-600 microns on to the heated surface of pipe.Once the FBE coated on the pipe surface,the FBE film provides an extremely hard surface with great adhesion to the surface of pipe.The FBE layer in a even form and have good resistance to the chemical reaction.

Fusion bonded epoxy (FBE) coating are used to prevent corrosion and harmful chemicals of steel pipes.This is a thin coating made of epoxy-resin powder material in a thin film and applied to pipes by a special coating device for electrostatic spraying.These FBE coated pipes can be used in temperatures up to 85oC in dry conditions.

The steel pipes are treated by shot blasting and intermediate frequency preheating before painting, and then the epoxy powder coating is sprayed on the surface of the heated pipe products by electrostatic spraying method, which is fused and bonded on the surface of the steel pipe and solidified to form a coating. FBE coating is usually one – step film – forming structure.

Features of fusion bonded epoxy(FBE) coating steel pipes:

  • FBE coating is corrosion resistant and chemical resistant
  • FBE coating has strong adhesion to steel, film integrity, soil stress and wear resistance.
  • FBE coating increases the life span of steel pipes.
  • The FBE coating can be used for external corrosion protection of buried or underwater steel piping installations with operating temperatures of -30~100 °c.
  • On the other hand,the defect of the FBE steel pipe is it have poor resistance to mechanical damage and heat and humidity.

How many types for the FBE coating steel pipe?

FBE steel pipe have two types:one layer and two layers pipe.

FBE coating steel pipes are generally single layer coated pipe.It provides a rough, non-slip surface for a pipeline that require a concrete coating.A special fusion bonded epoxy powder mixed with solid epoxy resin and other adhesive material that helped to adhere to pipe surface.

FBE dual layers coated steel pipes have high performances on the impact resistance and flexibility,so they are recommended for the offshore pipelines and the pipelines systems operating in the tough environments.Offers suitable protection for the coating from the damage during transportation and construction.The second layer is also made of a similar fused bonded epoxy,and the two layers are sprayed in turn.Depending on the application,the dual-layer FBE can also be fitted with an Abrasion-Resistant Overcoat(ARO) to reduce damage to the pipe.

Haihao Group can supply seamless steel pipe and welded steel pipe with FBE coating and other types coating such as black paint,anti-rust oil,varnish,3PE,PBE,galvanized,etc.If you want to know more about our piping products,please email us:sales@haihaogroup.com
