|This standard describes the material and application
requirements for fusion-bonded epoxy coatings for the interior and
exterior of steel water pipe, special sections, welded joints,
connections, and fittings for steel water pipelines installed
underground or underwater. Fusion-bonded epoxy coatings are
heat-activated, chemically cured coating systems.
Minimum pipe diameter. The minimum pipe diameter for
application of an internal coating that can be inspected and
repaired by entering the pipe shall be 24 in. (600 mm).* Pipe
diameters less than 24 in. (600 mm) that can be
electrically inspected internally may be included, provided the
work complies with applicable provisions of this standard.
AWWA pipe coating standards are written for and based on the
service temperature of potable water. Consult the coating
manufacturer for conditions and limitations.
The purpose of this standard is to provide the minimum
requirements for fusion-bonded epoxy coating for the interior and
exterior of steel water pipelines, including materials,
application, and testing.
* Metric conversions given in this standard are direct
conversions of US customary units and are not those specified in
International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards.
