Our plant is ISO 9001:2008 registered and assures quality in its application of corrosion protection to steel line pipe. We offer fusion-bonded epoxy coatings for the interior and exterior of steel pipe for oil and gas markets.

Fusion Bonded Epoxy (FBE) 

L.B. Foster applies Fusion-Bonded Epoxy (FBE) coatings that exceed all industry pipe coating standards. This protective coating is a one-part, heat curable, thermosetting epoxy powder designed for corrosion protection of pipe. FBE coated pipe is in service worldwide. 

Abrasion Resistant Overcoating (ARO) 

L.B. Foster can provide additional protection to FBE coated pipe with the application of Abrasion Resistant Overcoating (ARO). This durable 2-Layer system is ideal for tough installations, such as directional drilling and exposed river crossings.
