RCT – Protective Fusion Bonded Epoxy

RCT protective fusion bonded epoxy coated fittings are coated on the internal and external surfaces in accordance with all applicable terms and conditions of the ANSI/AWWA C116/A21.16-09 standard. Section 4.3.2 of the AWWA C116 provides the FBE mil thickness in the joint area shall not have a coating of less than 6 mil, and advises it may be necessary to establish a limit for maximum applied thickness in the joint area. RCT standard applied coating is 8-10 mils. RCT fusion bonded epoxy coating meets or exceeds ANSI/NSF 61 Drinking Water Components- Health Effects, NSF. Fusion bonded epoxy or "Powder Coatings" products are considered green and have many environmental benefits. A powder coating is made up of raw materials, similar to other coatings, but without organic solvents. As a result there is no volatile release of organic compounds (VOCs) into the atmosphere during application.
