High Build Epoxy coating for pipelines

HBE-95 is an advanced two-component epoxy coating system which has been specifically formulated for pipelines worldwide.

Applied to bare steel, HBE-95 has proven to withstand operating temperatures up to 95°C (302°F) with superior performance. HBE-95 is used for protection of pipeline field joint girth welds, valves and fittings, as a holiday repair material on FBE-coated pipe or for pipeline coating rehabilitation projects. Available in Fast, Medium and Slow cure speed options, HBE-95 is tailored to different application environments with its flexible pot life. This environmentally friendly, 100% solids, novolac epoxy system can either be spray-applied or brush-applied to the intended substrate.

Corrosion Protection up to 95°C

  • HBE-95 coating system was designed to protect operating pipelines up to 95°C with exceptional performance

Exceeds FBE Performance Requirements

  • Exceeds FBE coating performance requirements, including impact resistance, hot water soak adhesion and resistance to cathodic disbonding, as specified in USA (NACE RP0394), British (CW6), and Canadian (CSA Z245.20) standards

Fast, Medium and Slow Cure Options

  • HBE-95 brush grade comes with three different cure speed options: Fast, Medium and Slow. Cure speed options present pot-life flexibility based on ambient temperatures and cycle time requirements

High Build in Single Coat

  • A single pass application direct-to-metal will achieve a high build coating thickness of 20-40mils (500-1000microns)

Variety of Uses

  • Mainline pipelines, rehabilitation projects, girth weld field joints, damage and holiday repair to FBE coated pipe, pipeline valves, fittings and bends, or directional drilling applications
