Concrete Silo Restoration and Coating Project in Crookston, Minnesota

April 8th, 2015 · No Comments · Coatings, Restoration

TMI Coatings is currently completing a large concrete silo restoration and coating project in northwest Minnesota.  TMI’s crew safely rigged scaffolding from the silo roofs to access the silo walls to remove all loose and/or spalling concrete.  TMI then prepared all exposed rebar by mechanically abrading to remove rust prior to priming.  TMI’s crew then applied a cementitious mortar specifically designed for vertical surfaces to fill voids and restore surfaces to surrounding plane.  After repairs we will apply a waterproof coating to silo exteriors.  This two coat system consists of a primer and top coat.  The top coat is a waterproof coating which will resist wind driven rain and span hairline cracks for a waterproof exterior.

Containment Dike Lining & Repairs

February 19th, 2015 · No Comments · Coatings

A natural gas company in Kansas contracted TMI Coatings to repair cracks and line the interior of a concrete containment dike. The containment dike was 55’ long x 20’ wide including up the walls 3’. TMI mechanically abraded the walls and floor by shotblasting and grinding with hand-held grinders. TMI then primed the entire area with a primer recommended by the manufacturer prior to the application of the pliable/rubberized lining material. After priming we then top coated the entire containment area, floor and walls, with a urethane elastomer which expands and contracts therefore will not crack, chip or peel due to temperature changes. The customer was concerned regarding cracks prior to application therefore TMI paid special attention by installing a urethane sealant in the cracked areas for a thorough seal. The site contact stated that TMI did a very great job on this project; the crew was very efficient and worked safely.
