This technical publication has been prepared under the technical direction of the EI's Containment Systems Working Group (CSWG) adopting the findings from the Research report: Fire resistance testing of sealant materials and system components for secondary containment construction/expansion joints. It aims to make industry practitioners (e.g. designers and bulk storage facility managers) intelligent customers of the various commercially available bund sealant materials and configurations used to provide fire resistance and leak tightness in secondary containment (i.e. bund) wall construction/expansion joints. It provides guidance on installation, inspection, maintenance and life cycle considerations.

Provided alongside this technical publication and the research report is also a media pack that collates visual information, including videos and photographs, which were taken during fire exposure and hydrostatic testing of the selected sealant materials and system components. It also provides concise information mirroring the guidance in this technical publication for ease of reading and reference for designers, specifiers, end users and product suppliers.
