NO OTHER COATING compares to the versatility of GLS Coatings' Specialist chemical bund lining...

The failure of a chemical bund is almost always caused by structural movement, causing the concrete or other substrates such as fibreglass to crack.

Because our seamless coating has an elongation property of more than 300%, it moves with the natural movement of the chemical bund, yet keeps its integrity, as it is essentially a seamless 'bag within a bund', firmly attached to the bund walls.

GLS has access to systems which have been specially formulated to meet or exceed the requirements of both UK WRAS approval as well as Regulation 31, of the Water Supply (Water Quality) Regulations, the UK's most stringent and highest standard for water containment.

From start to finish GLS Coatings' Projects have complete traceability through our bespoke iPad Digital Reporting System

GLS pure Polyurea contains NO CFCs, NO VOCs and NO SOLVENTS and is 100% solids. It is also touch dry in 5 to 7 seconds making it easy and quick to apply.

GLS Coatings come into their own when used for lining Tanks, Chemical Bunds, Manholes and Sewers.

GLS100RApplications

Our Specialist Spray-applied Polyurea Coatings protect steel pipes and concrete from chemically corrosive elements and can be applied during the construction phase or when refurbishment is being undertaken.

Our seamless spray applied coatings are impervious to many chemicals in use throughout industry, including Sodium Hydroxide, Hydrochloric Acid, Diesel Fuel and Ethylene Glycol.

The chemical bund lining coatings are professionally applied by our trained applicators using specialist high pressure plural component application equipment. The speed and ease of application allows large surface areas to be coated in a very short time providing the fastest return to service.

Chemical Bund Case Studies

INEOS Chlor Caustic Tank Bund

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. It can be used to seal failing fibreglass, steel or concrete bunds, providing the perfect solution which lasts for decades.

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 chemical bund lining 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.


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 Bund 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."

Man-holes

Lining man-holes provides another application for GLS Coatings. With our Technicians wearing 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 Cetificates for Confined Space working, and Fit Test certification for the specialist respirators which were required.
