To assess the Resicoat R4 Blue fusion bonded epoxy coating produced by Akzo Nobel Powder Coatings GmbH.
The Resicoat R4 Blue coating is a fusion bonded epoxy powder coating which provides a sealed surface, free of any porous areas, for the protection of cast iron valves and fittings. Generally the coating is used for butterfly valves, filter slabs, fittings, gate valves, ground anchor, hydrants, insulation joints and water meters.
The powder coating is applied in one layer on a preheated surface by electrostatic spray application. The resultant thermoset epoxy has a high mechanical resistance with electrical insulation properties.
