Specialist Bund Wall Lining
Bunds are liquid containment structures used to keep liquids from leaking from storage tanks and vessels. While concrete and mortar have good structural properties, they are prone to failure, resulting in fractures and leaks.
Bund linings are intended to preserve the underlying substrate by forming an impermeable and long-lasting layer.
Effective linings are required to ensure that bunds are dependable secondary containment structures. They should be completely impermeable and capable of containing and mitigating leaks and spills from fuel and chemical tanks.

There are three main different materials used for bund linings in Greater Manchester, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. Let’s take a look at the most common materials used for a bund lining.
Epoxy coatings are a very adaptable type of surface protection. Their application ranges from thin film coatings to thicker, more durable coatings for heavy-duty applications.
Epoxy resin is a thermoset resin, which means that it hardens permanently when cured. Epoxy resins can be used on concrete and metals such as steel. Standard uses include anything from walls and floors to bunds and storage tanks in Greater Manchester.
Epoxy coatings, like glass fibre, are extremely successful in extending the life of existing surfaces and structures. They protect the underlying substrate from chemical, biological, and mechanical damage because they are so strong – perfect for bund lining.
This avoids the need for expensive replacements. Furthermore, other additives can be used to boost mechanical strength, such as screed and aggregate, as well as grit to increase slide resistance.
Fibreglass linings and coatings are a very adaptable and effective way of waterproofing and protecting a wide range of surfaces and structures in Greater Manchester. They are extremely durable and resistant to mechanical, chemical, and biological damage.
Fibreglass may be used on a wide range of surfaces and constructions, including bund lining. Fibreglass is a very adaptable and durable barrier that is ideal for a wide range of substrates, from concrete restorations to waterproofing and chemical protection. Polyester resin is used in the production of standard fibreglass.
Glass fibre linings are a good choice for a wide range of surfaces and constructions, including concrete, steel, and existing GRP. The bulk of applications are focused on the building and industrial processing industries. They are extremely successful in extending the life of existing surfaces and structures, frequently eliminating the need for expensive replacements.
Polyurethane and silicone are two flexible polymers that are used to protect diverse surfaces in Greater Manchester. Their appearance and application, like that of epoxies, may be customised from thin film coatings to thicker, more durable systems integrating additional constituents for tailored performance.
They lack the hardness of epoxy resins, but their higher flexibility makes them especially ideal for surfaces prone to movement, such as corrugated metal roofs and other structures. While they are robust on their own, they may be reinforced with aggregates and other materials to increase their strength.
In many cases, these are spray-applied. A spray application can be a fast and cost-effective way to protect a high surface area in a single application.
Bund re-lining work is generally 20 – 30% of the cost of a full bund replacement, which can be a very expensive process. Individual bund re-lining projects for chemical storage tanks typically range between £2,000 and £4,000, depending on the size of the bund. The overall cost of more selective bund repairs is expected to be a fraction of the cost of a new bund.
Existing bunds frequently have fractures or areas of deterioration that must be repaired. Depending on the repair needs, cementitious or epoxy repair materials might be used.
Something that is sometimes forgotten when applying linings to new bunds is the requirement to plug blow holes in the concrete prior to installing the bund lining. Blow holes cannot be covered with coatings alone, which many contractors fail to recognise.
A full bund lining system comprises several layers of different materials, each with its own unique properties. The cost of this will vary significantly depending on the size of the bund necessary.
A large primary containment bund structure like a chemical storage tank will require more materials to coat than a smaller secondary containment vessel will, and therefore, coating the bund walls well enough to meet bund lining requirements will be more expensive.
It is not necessary to line all bunds. If an aggressive chemical that might harm the structure is to be stored in the bund, the bund would typically be lined. A concreted bund housing a tank carrying a powerful chemical such as hydrochloric acid is a classic example.
If the tank leaked or ruptured, the acid would swiftly damage the concrete, jeopardising the bund’s capacity to adequately contain the spill.
Another major cause for lining a bund is that faults in the construction were discovered during periodic testing and inspection. Repairs and the application of an appropriate liner can bring the bund back into compliance and eliminate the risk of environmental harm.
A bund lining is a protective coating with high chemical resistance applied to the inside of a bund. Bund linings are tough and resistant with a high level of fluid-tightness, whilst concrete bund walls can be easily damaged by chemical attack, leaking and causing groundwater pollution as a result. If a fuel storage tank is protected with a bund lining, then it is less likely to leak and cause problems.
Most bund walls are made from structural materials with a relatively low chemical resistance, such as concrete. When coated with a bund lining material such as a fibreglass lining, the bund will be much more able to survive leaks of materials such as nitric acid.
Because a bunded tank has a high moisture content, a bund lining must be fluid-tight, as well as resistant to chemicals and UV light. Fibreglass lining is one of the best options for this, but you should check local building regulations for your area.
If not properly prepared with abrasive blasting and lined appropriately, bunds can leak fluids into structural walls, causing long-term problems. If properly protected and prepared, however, bunds are a positive addition to any fuel tank or other liquid storage tank.
Bunding and bund lining are governed by specific local regulations. Check local laws regarding bunds and bund linings before you commit to anything. Alternatively, get in touch with us today for any questions you may have about bund linings.
A protective bund lining is vital to protect the structural materials of your building from chemicals. Without a bund lining, any leaks from chemical tanks will spill into the concrete of your building. Bund linings prevent this from happening and can save you tens of thousands of pounds in repairs.
