Case Studies

Bund Coatings

Because our coating has elongation properties of over 300%, it is the only coating which moves with the natural movements of the bund and doesn't crack, providing the perfect solution which lasts for decades. It can be used to seal failing fibreglass, steel or concrete bunds.


INEOS Chlor

Wearing full BA sets, our Technicians worked in the strictly controlled environment at INEOS Chlor's Runcorn site to cure a leak in their 15K Caustic tank bund.

Our coating was the only one which can withstand the effects of NaOH and because it is TOUCH DRY in UNDER 10 SECONDS, the bund was returned to service immediately.


Petrochemical Industry

Because GLS Coatings are impervious to the effects of diesel fuel and petroleum, they are the perfect solution for refineries, tank exteriors, pipelines and petrochemical applications.

Leeds-Bradford Airport Aviation Fuel Bund

The Jet A1(Kerosene) fuel bund at Leeds Bradford Airport had been out of action for some time, so they turned to GLS Coatings Ltd for a solution. In 2014, our team of Technicians prepared and coated the 240m2 bund with our Specialist Polyurea Coating with the work coming in on time and fully to specification.

Lee White, who commissioned the work, said, "Everywhere I go I tell people the story of your spray coating and how in my opinion it sorted out the bund at Leeds.

As soon as an opportunity arises, I'll be calling as it was so simple and efficient. To me it is a no brainer."


Man-holes

Lining man-holes provides another application for GLS Coatings. With our Technicians working with full safety gear, including air-fed masks and rescue tripod system, they coated the man-hole system on a Cheshire-based Chemical plant. The coating completely stopped the leak from the concrete man-hole and the work was completed in just one day.


Nuclear Sector

Our teams are fully experienced when working in the Nuclear Sector.

Among the nuclear sites we have worked on is Dungeness A Site, at Romney Marsh in Kent. Project Manager Jim Maamoun commissioned GLS Coatings to coat a Drainage Reception Tank at the plant.

We worked with Jim to devise the Work Package Plan and the Methodology for the work. Because of the nature of the work, our Technicians had to provide Training and Medical Certificates for Confined Space working, and Fit Test certification for the specialist respirators which were required.
