FBE(Fusion Bonded Epoxy Powder)

FBEis also known as thermosetting fusion bonded epoxy powder. This coating systemis engineered to protect pipelinesreinforcingbars, pipe connections and valves ect. from corrosion in the most demandingoperating environments.It is designed for use in single layer applications and as a primer layer fordual layer FBE and 3 layer PE/PP applications. fusion bonded epoxy powder
