Recommended Thickness of FBE Coating Q: I have a client who requires the thickness of a fusion-bonded epoxy (FBE) coating to be a minimum of 250 µm and maximum of 300 µm. If I apply more than a 300 µm thickness, what would the effect be? A: We apply FBE on a daily basis. FBE applied to 250 µm is a single layer coating process applied on pre- heated surfaces. Based on my experience, application of FBE up to 700 to 800 µm has little to no noticeable efects other than powder consumption (depending on your specifc application). Tat said, I rec- ommend you contact the powder manu- facturer for his recommendations for maximum allowable dry flm thickness
