For the past few decades, FBE has been widely applied on pipes for transporting gas, oil and water. Due to the depletion of crude oil supplies, crude oil from greater depth and more inadequate areas has to be extracted, which means higher temperature of the crude oil, therefore new FBE is required to protect the pipes in high temperatures. Normally, FBE has Tg below 110 oC, in temperatures higher than the Tg, the mechanical properties of FBE such as its toughness, flexibility and adhesiveness are reduced. Due to these factors, general FBE may not effectively protect pipes in temperatures over 110 oC. This paper reports evaluation methods for these high Tg FBE, and the performance differences between the high Tg FBE and general FBE.

Key words: Fusion Bonded Epoxy (FBE), Pipe coating, High Temperature, High Tg, Glass Transition
