TMI Coatings is rehabilitating the complete interior of the 2 million elevated water tower and over coating the exterior for the City of Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The entire exterior surfaces were high pressure washed at 10,000 PSI in addition to SSPC-SP 11 spot cleaning to remove all loose and failed coatings while utilizing a full containment system to collect debris. The exterior will then receive 3 full coats of epoxy/urethane and two new logos.

TMI Coatings waterproofed the roofs of six large silos, a head house, and upper and lower gantries. TMI’s crew prepared the surface and then applied a waterproof coating to thoroughly seal and waterproof the roof and all penetrations. Aggregate was broadcast into the urethane coating for a non-slip finish.

The scope of work consisted of SSPC-SP2 hand tool cleaning, SSPC-SP3 power tool clean, SSPC-SP12/NACE 5 surface preparation by high pressure water jet. TMI prepared surfaces then installed one full coat of epoxy primer. TMI then applied a top coat of a high solids polyurethane finish coat as specified by owner. On the stairways, handrails, ladders, platforms TMI coated OSHA safety yellow in color. TMI then installed lettering as specified by owner.

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.

TMI Coatings removed existing peeling and flaking paint from the floor of a power generation plant in Fridley, Minnesota. TMI then applied an epoxy sealer/dustproofer to keep the dust to a minimum and help keep the floor clean.
TMI was able to complete this project on short notice and during weekend hours. The site contact appreciated the good attitudes and hard work from the TMI crew, stated the sealer/dustproofer looked good and they look forward to coating the next floor area.

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.

An engine and generator distributor in South Dakota hired TMI Coatings to install a protective roof coating to their metal roof. The metal roof leaked in many areas. The owner contacted TMI for a solution. TMI installed a premium grade metallic coating on the large steel roof. This coating has a 10 year rustproof and waterproof warranty, and reflects the heat to keep the roof cool during the summer heat.
