Bunding Installation

Best Bunding is easy to install - simply watch the video below and follow the instructions.

For a professional 'Do It Yourself' installation we recommend that you purchase one of our hassle-free Installation KitsOne installation kit installs up to 10 meters of Best Bunding.  

Our Installation Kit Includes
  • 4 tubes of adhesive/sealant
  • 1 paint marker
  • 1 caulking gun
Tools Required
  • Measuring tape
  • Sharp blade/knife or fine hacksaw

We supply and recommend the use of Simson ISR 70-03 Silyl Modified Polymer for the best results due its unique combination of adhesive and sealant properties.  Unlike cheaper variants ISR 70-03 can be used with minimal ground preparation and doesn't require a primer.

Step 1

Step 1 - Prepare Bunding

Roll out bunding at least 1 hour before installation to remove any depressions in the material.

Step 2

Step 2 - Prepare Surface

Apply degreaser diluted with water 20 parts to 1 with a broom or mop to all floor surfaces.

Step 3

Step 3 - Degrease Surface

Rinse floor area with water, then mop or scrape areas containing residual oil or grease.

Step 4

Step 4 - Cut Bunding

Once the surface is completely dry, accurately measure the length of bunding required and carefully cut to size using a sharp blade.

Step 5

Step 5 - Mark Surface

Mark a straight line on the floor along the edge of the proposed line of bunding.

Step 6

Step 6 - Clean Bunding

Cleaning underside surface of bunding to remove any dirt or dust.

Step 7

Step 7 - Apply Adhesive

Apply a continuous bead of adhesive into two outside slots for the full length and a small amount in the middle slot of every metre of bunding to be installed.

Step 8

Step 8 - Secure Bunding

Carefully lay the bunding over against the straight line and apply downward pressure to ensure floor contact with adhesive until the full length is installed. The best way to ensure maximum contact is to walk “heel to toe” along the length of the bunding.

Step 9

Step 9 - Wall Contact

If bunding is installed to abut a wall, carefully apply adhesive to the joint to ensure a waterproof seal between the wall and bunding.

Step 10 Step 10

Step 10 - Making a Corner Piece

Place bunding at right angles and seal pieces together.

Or for a neater option, cut bunding at 45 degree angles and seal together.

Installation Tips

  • Installed as per instructions, Best Bunding will provide a trafficable bund barrier impervious to oils, greases, detergents and chemicals found in most industrial settings.
  • Ensure the floor is completely clean before attempting to adhere Best Bunding otherwise adhesive may not adhere effectively.
  • Surface ripples present when first unrolling Best Bunding will eventually smooth after the Best Bunding is installed.
  • Best Bunding must not be exposed to vehicular traffic for 24 hours after application. If it is necessary for vehicles to cross Best Bunding within 24 hours of installation, place a ramp over the required traffic section or position a length of timber on either side of the Best Bunding to protect the adhesive from being disturbed.
  • Best Bunding should not be installed on a concrete lip or step edge where tyres may "drag" the bunding forward. Consider laying the material on a flat area back from edges or lips for effective use.
  • Clean, smooth bends may be formed with Best Bunding to 90 degrees, for corners or around work areas. A minimum arc of at least 1 metre is required. To create a bend, lay the Best Bunding on the floor and place a weight on the material at a point before the required bend. Carefully form the bend ensuring that the Best Bunding does not gather or lift at any point, place a weight on the Best Bunding at the other end of the bend. Once the bend is formed, mark a line along the edge of the Best Bunding to assist in aligning once adhesive has been applied.
