Dependable and cost effective, powder coating consists is mixture of finely ground particles of pigments and resins sprayed (normally electrostatically) to a surface. It is then heated and fused into a smooth coating. Our powder coating system, XTRA SHIELD™, consists of a zinc-rich epoxy primer and a topcoat of high quality polyester.
Fusion Bonded Epoxy (FBE) is an epoxy-based powder coating that is applied to pipe and steel to protect from corrosion. The powder is applied to the substrate, normally to about 400 degrees Fahrenheit, where the powder melts into a liquid form and becomes a solid coating by chemical cross-linking. This process is known as fusion bonding, and will greatly extend the life of your pipes.
