FPT has recently introduced 'E-coat' coating in lieu of traditional hot dipped galvanising on fabricated manifolds and other pipework.
The E-coat process produces superior performance both in corrosion resistance and quality than galvanising and provides an even coating both inside and outside fabricated pieces without reducing the internal diameter, even in small bore pipework.
E-coat also eliminates the need to rework pipe threads after coating since the coating does not have the heavy, thick coating that hot dip galvanising produces.
The E-coat process produces an even black coating which can easily be painted over, without etching, to suit any desired colour scheme.
