Application, Performance, and Quality Control of Plant-Applied, Fusion-Bonded Epoxy External Pipe Coating
|Publication Date:||17 February 2002|
This standard presents guidelines for establishing minimum requirements to ensure proper application and performance of plant-applied, 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 suggests or describes methods for qualifying and controlling the quality of FBE pipe coatings, provides guidelines for their proper application, and identifies inspection and repair techniques to obtain the best applied FBE coating system.
