Water Tank Coating

A bituminous solution manufactured to BS 3416; 1991; Type 1; Class A, used to protect water tanks from damage and corrosion.

Since the withdrawal of the Water Research council's approval of bitumen for use in water tanks and equipment for all public services, bituminous solutions will only be permitted on existing bituminised tanks under BS 3416. Therefore, the majority of private boat owners will be able to use bitumen coatings such as Karma Coatings water tank coating under BS 3416.
