What are chemical bunded storage containers
Bunded chemical storage containers are typically large trays on which or into which the user set the chemical drums or containers. The chemical bund captures and retains the spilled chemical after a leak or any other spillage event. Chemical storage bunds should be used in areas hosting chemical storage tanks, especially in areas housing toxic or flammable liquids, hazardous substances, and chemicals.
Why do you need a bunded chemical store?
Under “The Control of Pollution Act (2001),” commercial and industrial tanks need to have reliable secondary containment to prevent chemicals and other fuels from spilling to the outside, especially when leaks occur.A bunded chemical storage container is a crucial tool that helps industrial and commercial users to comply with all the government requirements concerning the above regulation.

What materials make quality chemical bunds?
In most cases, bunded storage containers are made of steel or molded plastic structures. Here at Spill Craft, we stock superior plastic chemical bund solutions made from LDPE – Low Density Polyethylene. LDPE is also used to make IBCs, chemical containers and chemical drums. Steel bunds are recommended for chemicals that are not corrosive. Corrosive chemicals require a plastic bund liner or a plastic bund that contains a sealable lid.
What is the recommended size of a chemical bunded storage container?
The recommended chemical bunded storage solutions should have the capacity to hold approximately 110% of the optimal holding capacity of the biggest drum or tank in the chemical store. The extra space allows additional foam during emergency response. For chemical stores with various drums or container stored, the recommended bund capacity is 110% of the largest container volume. Separate bunds are also recommended for incompatible substances.
