Surface preparation of pipes includes removal of all surface moisture by passing pipes through a heating ring and flame, impinging all surface contaminants.
Prepared pipe passes through a process of wire brushing and vacuuming before the application of chromate pre-treatment. This is followed by induction heating which reaches a temperature between 180°C – 240°C prior to processing through an electrostatic spray booth. Full curing takes place within seconds with inspection commencing once surface temperature has reduced to a hand touch level.
A layer of Fusion Bonded Epoxy (FBE) is applied. Thereafter a high performance protective adhesive layer is applied to the FBE coating which bonds to the final coat of either Polyethylene or Polypropylene.
Long Term Corrosion Protection
- FBE has excellent adhesion to steel and provides superior long term corrosion resistance and protection of pipelines operating at moderate temperatures for the designed life.
- Special grades of FBE are available for use at higher operating temperatures, for coating of high strength steels and other specific applications.
Our mission is to provide our clients with efficient and competitive top quality pipe coating services using leading technology, undertaken in a safe environment and delivered on time.
