GLS 200B® INEOS Chlor Case Study
Businesses in the UK are coming under increasing pressure to ensure the condition of their chemical bunds is compliant with the Oil Storage Regulations. This is because the Environment Agency is able to impose uncapped fines on anyone who causes a spill.
Rebuilding a bund from scratch is a costly process which also means that tanks within the bunded area must be emptied of all chemicals. The solution is to engage GLS Coatings specialist technicians to provide an instant solution with a coating which is resistant to most chemicals and is spray-applied and touch-dry as soon as it is applied.
When INEOS Chlor in Runcorn wanted to have the expansion joints in one of their caustic bunds sealed, they turned to GLS Coatings Ltd for our considerable technical experience in this area of application.
GLS Coatings technicians have many years' experience in this specialist area applying a coatings system that is spray-applied, fast-curing and touch-dry in 5 - 10 seconds. This provides an unrivalled return to service time, which means the minimum disruption to production. Often, bunds are coated, sealed and back in operation the same day.
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.
GLS Coatings' chemical resistant bund coating structurally reinforces corroded structures and weakened substrates. Our coating adheres to concrete, brick, steel, vitrified and clay pipes, cast iron, asbestos, glass fibre and PVC.
GLS Coating is fast curing and is extremely durable and hard-wearing. It is ideal for bund refurbishments and has been approved for contact with potable water.
