Rylard Water Tank Coating

Rylard Water Tank Coating

Rylard Water Tank Coating

Traditional spirit based bitumen coating for potable water tanks.

Surface tolerant and easier to prepare for and apply than epoxy based systems.

Can be applied over any sound tank coating.

  • Touch Dry in 6-8 hrs, hard dry in 24hrs at 10°C

Apply two full coats and flush tank with mild detergent solution then fresh water before use.


New legislation has resulted in the withdrawal of the Water Research council's approval of bitumen for use in water tanks and equipment for all public services. This will mean that bituminous solutions will not be approved by the WRC but its continuing use on existing bituminised tanks will be permitted under BS 3416. For the majority of private boat owners they will still be able to use bitumen coatings such as Rylard water tank coating (bituminous) to BS 3416; 1191; Type 1; Class A.

Stock: Available for next working day delivery on orders placed online before 2.30pm.
