Enduro Coat Fusion Bonded Epoxy Coating is a one-part heat-curable, thermosetting epoxy coating designed for corrosion-protection storage vessels. The epoxy is applied to preheated steel as a dry powder which melts and cures to a uniform coating thickness. This bonding process provides excellent adhesion and coverage on pipe, panels, angle iron and associated fittings. Enduro Coat is resistant to corrosive soils, hydrocarbons, harsh chemicals and sea water.
Powdered coating is applied in a controlled environment within the factory and over an SSPC-SP 10 near-white blast and thermally cured (Oven Baked). All coatings are applied in a factory-controlled environment, and blast is achieved using steel grit. All factory-applied coatings eliminate weather delays and possible environmental problems.
- If coatings are applied to welded vessels in the field, improper environmental conditions, such as temperature and humidity, can delay the project or the coatings will fail.
- Flash oxidation will occur in field-applied coatings if they are applied too quickly.
Advantages of Fusion Bonded Epoxy-Coated Carbon Steel Tanks over Glass-Fused tanks:
- Complete edge coverage as well as bolt hole coverage with Enduro Coat Fusion Bonded Epoxy Coating.
- No cracking occurs during torquing of bolts on an Epoxy-Coated Carbon Steel Tanks.
- Fusion Bonded Epoxy-Coated Carbon Steel tanks can be repaired in the field.
- Fusion Bonded Epoxy-Coated Carbon Steel tanks can be sandblasted and re-coated.
- Fusion Bonded Epoxy-Coated Carbon Steel tanks have been tested to 180 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Fusion Bonded Powder Coated Epoxy has been tested to 20 years with no adverse effects.
- No primer required.
- Fast curing for high application productivity.
- Easy visual inspection of coated surfaces.
- Protects over wide temperature range.
- Resistant to cathodic disbondment.
- Bendability exceeds requirements of ANSI B31.4 or B31.8 codes.
- Enduro Coat is United States Environmental Protection Agency and United Kingdom National Water Council acceptable for use as a coating in contact with potable water. It also meets the requirements of NSF certifications and the American Water Works Association Standard C213 and C550.
