GLS100R GLS 200B® Leeds Bradford Airport Case Study

GLS Coatings were approached on behalf of Leeds Bradford Airport because one of their aviation fuel points was out of action due to the failure of a coating on its bunded area.

Technical situation

GLS Coatings Ltd carried out a detailed technical evaluation of the customer's current situation.

It became immediately apparent that the existing fibreglass coating, which had only been in situ for a few months, was beginning to crack and had been adversely affected by the aviation fuel.

Also, the area around the sump at one corner of the bund had been leaking around the pipework.

Leeds Bradford Airport were looking for a solution which would seal the whole bund, particularly around the pipework, as well as providing a chemical resistant coating.


GLS Coatings specified GLS 200B Protective Coating.

It was spray-applied to the surface of the bund and because it seals and protects instantly (it is touch-dry in under 10 seconds), the whole bund was fully protected and ready to go back into service within 24 hours.

GLS Coatings Specialist Bund Coatings meet recent legislation, which states that bunds must now be in good repair, of adequate size and be completely watertight.

Only GLS Specialist bund coating is resistant to a wide range of chemicals, from Potassium Hydroxide, to Hydrochloric and Sulphuric Acid.
