Fusion Bonded Epoxy Pipe Coating
Northpoint is the UK market leader in water treatment and supply pipe coatings.
Our experience in fusion bonded epoxy (FBE) pipe and pipe fittings coating requirements dates back to the 1980’s, servicing a number of industries including water supply and treatment, offshore, and gas and oil pipelines.
Akzo Nobel Resicote is the preferred FBE coating option for these sectors and holds a comprehensive range of approvals combined with a worldwide track record. Resicote can be applied to external and internal surfaces of pipes and fittings and exceeds all industry pipe coating standards.
As the UK’s largest independent Resicote applicator (FBE coating) Northpoint can service the requirements of pipe fabricators across the UK and internationally, for applications including oil and gas, water supply and hydrogen. Our project portfolio spans a global network, from Austrailia and the USA, to South America and the Middle East. Our dedicated FBE coating facility has the capability to coat pipes and valves up to 6.0m in length, 2.5m diameter and 3000kg in weight, which can be coated internally and externally by fluidised bed application.
Northpoint aims to provide the highest quality epoxy pipe coating and is Drinking Water Inspectorate accredited, in addition to holding DWI certifications for 3M Skotchkote 206N, Resicoat R4-FB HKC04R & Thixo 468.
Typical applications for FBE coating include carbon steel fabricated pipe fittings, submersible pump risers, fire hydrants, static mixers, structural steelwork and reinforcement steel. Resicote is a primary corrosion protection system offering exceptional protection in demanding environments. Additional colour FBE coating can be added to external surface areas where colour coding or UV screening is required.
Pipe coating application is fast track and work can be processed in as little as 6 hours by prior agreement, resulting in the ability to offer a premier corrosion protection system where emergency work is undertaken. Our transport fleet provides collection and delivery services, creating a seamless experience for our customers.
