Bending Test And Adhesion of FBE powder coating

FBE powder coating

Adhesion of FBE powder coating A cupping tester is mainly used to determine the adhesion of FBE powder coating, and Fig.7 shows the test principle of the cupping tester. The head of the cupping tester is spherical, pushing the back of coated panels to test whether the positive film cracked or separated from the substrate. Fig.8 is a cupping test result of the epoxy powder coating. It could be seen that the FBE powder coatings that are not filled withRead More …

Preparation of Carboxylterminated for Fusion-bonded-epoxy Powder Coating


Preparation and Characterization of Carboxylterminated Poly (butadiene-co-acrylonitrile) -epoxy Resin Prepolymers for Fusion-bonded-epoxy Powder Coating 1 Introduction Fusion-bonded-epoxy (FBE) powder coatings which were first developed by 3M Co., are used widely when long-term corrosion protection is critical such as in the oil, metal, gas and water pipelines industries. However, the performance requirements for FBE powder coatings are challenging because of their high cross-linking density. The inherent brittleness of cured coatings is one of the major obstacles preventing wider application for epoxiesRead More …

Introduction of Fusion bonded epoxy powder coating

Fusion bonded epoxy coating

Fusion bonded epoxy coating, also known as fusion-bond epoxy powder coating and commonly referred to as FBE coating, is an epoxy based powder coating that is widely used to protect steel pipe used in pipeline construction, concrete reinforcing bars (rebar) and on a wide variety of piping connections, valves etc. from corrosion. FBE coatings are thermoset polymer coatings. They come under the category of ‘protective coatings’ in paints and coating nomenclature. The name ‘fusion-bond epoxy’ is due to resin cross-linking andRead More …
