Application, Performance, and Quality Control of Plant-Applied Single-Layer Fusion-Bonded Epoxy External Pipe Coating
|Publication Date:||4 October 2013|
This standard presents guidelines for establishing the minimum requirements to ensure proper application and performance of plant-applied single-layer fusion-bonded epoxy (FBE) coatings to the external surfaces of pipe.
The function of such coatings is to prevent corrosion when used in conjunction with cathodic protection.
This standard describes methods for qualifying and controlling the quality of FBE pipe coatings, provides guidelines for proper application, and identifies inspection and repair techniques to obtain the best applied FBE coating system.
Appendixes A through N describe the methods for testing various properties of coatings and all are mandatory for compliance with this standard.
