Replacement Bund Linings FAQs

GLS Coatings can advise on the most suitable solution for all bund sealing, both for new structures and also for refurbishing your existing bund linings.

Over time tanks can corrode, and bunds also lose their ability to contain constant drips and spillages. Tank leakage and seepage through the base and walls of a bund could violate the Control of Pollution (Oil Storage) Regulations 2001, endangering people and the environment.

Please click here to view the information contained in the Environment Agency Guidance pdf for Above ground oil storage tanks: PPG 2, August 2011: "Advice on how to store oil safely in above ground oil storage tanks and comply with the law (excludes oil refineries and distribution depots for which there are several other specific PPG's issued)."

The environmental agency has released a set of standards that must now be adhered to, making sure that secondary containment is efficiently protecting any bunds. Pollution Prevention Guidance (PDF)

You can save significant capital expenditure and prevent further problems in the future by repairing leaking tanks and bund linings promptly with GLS Coatings. Please contact one of our fully trained specialists for any queries regarding bunds and tank sealing.

Applying GLS Coatings' Bund Lining System

  • 1. Prior to applying any Bund lining or protective coating in a primary or secondary containment tank or area over an existing structure, it is always necessary to first inspect and where necessary then carry out repairs to any visible damage or cracks in the concrete surface.

    2. GLS Coatings will clean the existing location with either water or grit blasting and then left to dry.

    3. Our GLS Coatings' spray applied bund liner is then applied.
