Fusion bonded epoxy: A custom powder coater’s workhorse

As custom coaters, we have the unique challenge of determining customer specific coatings systems on an almost daily basis. A majority of the jobs that we encounter have a high requirement for aesthetic over function. However, if you ever encounter a job that is going to be used in a harsh environment, such as a chemical processing plant or providing an effective corrosion resistant barrier, then you should familiarize yourself with fusion bonded epoxy (FBE) coatings. Furthermore, FBE may also help you grow your business by converting liquid coating systems to powder coating. The aim of this article is to give you a crash course in what separates an FBE from your typical epoxy primers, where and when it should be used, and when it should not.

FBE coatings have been commercially available since the early 1960’s and were primarily used for the coating of external pipe joints. From this very specific target application, FBEs are now used in a broad range of applications, such as valves, tank and pipe linings, rebar for use in concrete, and as a primer for use in aggressive environments.
