This International Standard specifies requirements for epoxy powders for use in preparing fusion-bonded epoxycoated
steel reinforcing bar, wire and welded fabric. This International Standard also includes requirements for
sealing material used to repair damaged areas and cut ends on reinforcing steel.
This International Standard defines a flexible (type A) coating and a nonflexible (type B) coating. The adhesion and
moisture resistance of fusion-bonded epoxy powder coatings can be enhanced by certain formulation designs.
These coating enhancements typically result in a reduction of the coating's flexibility.
