LAT-FBE

Low Application Temperature Fusion Bond Epoxy Powder Coating

Low Application Temperature Fusion Bond Epoxy (LAT-FBE ) is a plant applied powder coating typically used for strain based pipeline designs that require a low coating application temperature. This coating has similar operating capabilities as standard FBE and provides excellent corrosion protection.

Long Term Corrosion Protection

  • LAT 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
  • The superior adhesion properties also provide excellent resistance to cathodic disbondment which reduces the total cost of cathodic protection during the operation of the pipeline

Lower Application Temperature

  • The product can be applied at a much lower temperature (< 200°C) than conventional FBE (245°C)
  • The product maintains steel's initial design mechanical properties even for high strength pipelines (eg: X80 - X120 steel pipe)
  • LAT FBE can also be used as an epoxy primer for 3-layer systems applied on high strength steel for tough terrain conditions

Improved Handling characteristics

  • FBE is flexible and allows bending of the pipe for installation

Global Availability

  • Can be manufactured in a single plant or in multiple plant locations to improve project logistics
