 1.    General
APC E.P is an external coating for galvanized and black steel pipes comprised of polyester
(APC-P) or epoxy type (APE-E) paint powder. APC E.P is suitable for pipes with diameter
ranging from ½" to 24".
1.1 End use: APC E.P coated pipes are especially suited for automatic fire-extinguishing and
air conditioning systems. They are also suitable for many other uses where there is a call
for a highly durable exterior coated pipe with a pleasant decorative effect.


 
2. Product description
 
2.1 APC-P – External coating for galvanized or black steel pipes comprising of fusion bonded
polyester powder with a minimum thickness of 60µ. The coating is performed by spraying
the special polyester onto the pipe surface previously grit blasted to a cleanliness level of
Sa2½ according to International Standard ISO 8501-1, and then heated to a temperature of
over 200ºC prior to the spraying of powder by electrostatic spray guns. Thicker coatings of
up to 400µ can be obtained by special order.
 
2.2 APC-E – External coating for galvanized or black steel pipes comprising of fusion-bonded
epoxy powder (FBE) with a minimum thickness of 60µ. The coating is performed by the
spraying of a special epoxy powder onto the pipe surface previously grit blasted to a cleanliness
level of Sa2½ according to International Standard ISO 8501-1, and then heated to a temperature
of over 200ºC prior to spraying of powder by electrostatic spray guns. Thicker coatings of up to
400µ can be obtained by special order.
