Coating a Bund for Sulphuric Acid

There is often a range of hazardous chemicals contained in concrete bunds and one of the most common substances is Sulphuric Acid.  At CPRL our Bund Coat 3 system is formulated with high quality resin technology and offers chemical resistance on long term immersion basis of between 96% and 99% sulphuric acid concentration -making it the perfect solution for this type of bund protection.

Concrete, Breeze Block and Brick

Preparation is key to any successful bund lining project and sulphuric acid bunds are no different. Substrates need to be thoroughly prepared, cleaned and repaired.

For the best results we always recommend grit blasting the internal walls and floors of the chemical bund tank. This will ensure the removal of any existing coating, grease laitance and debris. Any repairs will need to be undertaken to the substrates before applying the new coating, again ensuring the optimum environment as well as providing the mechanical key for the new coating.

The high-quality epoxy resin-based products we recommend come as a two-pack system, comprising pre-weighed amounts of BASE and CURING AGENT components to ensure accurate application ratios and ease of use.

Objective

Coating A Diesel Bund

Concrete bunds, or secondary containment tanks will, over time deteriorate. Unlike some other concrete structures, damage with secondary containment can have severe consequences!

At CPRL our top-quality epoxy products ensure long lasting bund containment for spillages such as diesel, oil leaks and many more potentially hazardous materials.

Application

Preparation is key to any successful bund lining project and diesel bunds are no different. Substrates need to be thoroughly prepared, cleaned and repaired to the highest standard. We recommend grit blasting or mechanical scabbling to ensure the removal of contaminants in order to get the best results from the new coating. 

The high-quality epoxy resin-based products we recommend come as a two-pack system, comprising pre-weighed amounts of BASE and CURING AGENT components to ensure accurate application ratios. These materials have been developed for use in applications to oil contaminated substrates and exhibit outstanding adhesion to concrete and other substrates.

Both products are solvent free and low odour and offer excellent chemical resistance.

Repair and Maintenance Solutions

It’s a fact! Over time, concrete degrades, whether through natural environmental factors such as the weather, continuous use from cars and people or damage from oil or chemical attack.  Whilst this damaged concrete can be unsightly and appear unmaintained, there are also very real safety aspects that should be considered in relation to the structural integrity of the concrete.

In this article we focus on wastewater management and more specifically clarifier and settlement tanks where the failure in the apparatus can have significant consequences.

As with all concrete structures, clarifier tanks are vulnerable to chemical damage, erosion, and corrosion. Being able to repair the concrete damage and deterioration is likely to be the ideal option as this minimises both the expense and the operating downtime associated with other solutions such as replacing the equipment.

Repair solutions must be robust enough to endure the ongoing operating conditions and environment. This is where CPRL has the solutions.

Typical Repairs to Concrete Clarifier Tank include: 

Our first article looks at the repair system and process for ‘rim repairs’ – further articles are available via the links on all the above repair processes.
