FBE – Fusion Bonded Epoxy

EXTERNAL COATING AND INTERNAL LINING

fbe - FBE – Fusion Bonded Epoxy

V.I.P. Verniciatura Industriale Pesarese srl is one of the few companies able to offer Fusion Bonded Epoxy (FBE) coating on special pieces as well as on pipes.
The best epoxy resin powder applied on pre‐heated surfaces.
Thermosetting coating designed for the anticorrosive protection of articles destined to immersion or buried services in oil and gas sector and in the protection of the water pipeline.
The coating can be applied in a single double or triple layer and the method used guarantees that the coating can be applied with differentiated thickness as required by the specification.

  • Approved by Saudi Aramco

  • Approved for Drinking Water

Single and double layer coating

The single and double layer include a range of applicable products for meeting the most varied requirements in relation to pipeline protection.
It is one of the most economic coatings for pipelines.

Main advantages:
– Excellent adhesion to the metal substrate.
– High resistance to cathode detachment.
– Excellent resistance to corrosion and mechanical properties.
– Resistant to bending even when the film is very thick.

Long-lasting corrosion protection

The FBE primer offers an excellent adhesion to the substrate and provides a long-term corrosion protection for pipelines operating at moderate temperatures.
It also ensures the resistance to the cathodic disbondment so the total cost of cathodic protection of the pipeline decreases.

  • Small and large pipes
  • Standard and special fittings
  • Wide radius bends
  • Flanges
  • Custom pieces
  • Elongation at Break : > 600%
  • Hardness : Shore D 52
  • Minimum recommended temperature : – 40°C
  • Maximum recommended temperature : + 80°C

*Sintering is the coating process where a coating powder is sprayed on a preheated piece. Thanks to the heat emitted from the surface the powder fuses creating an homogeneous and continuous layer.

Selected from among the top qualified international brands by the biggest companies.
Selected raw materials and internationally recognized with qualifications from certified bodies.
