TMI Coatings, Inc. recently completed a repainting project for the City of Lincoln, Nebraska at a Water Resource Recovery Facility. The project consisted of re-coating the exteriors of three anaerobic digesters and one sludge storage tank. All were cleaned of all dirt and debris by pressure washing at 5,000 psi, followed by cutting out failed spray foam insulation and application of new spray foam insulation to the surrounding plane. The coating system used was an innovative overcoat system consisting of Tnemec Series 118 and Series 1072. The first coat consisted of a primer on exposed steel then followed by foam repair. Tnemec’s innovative water-based formulation designed specifically for over coating aged coating systems in the toughest exterior environments was the first of the two-coat system. The finish coat was chosen due to its superior weathering characteristics. Following the finish coat, TMI placed large logo/graphics in a full 360-degree wrap around the digesters. Steve Crisler, Lincoln Wastewater Systems Superintendent said, “I wish to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to you and your workforce for the excellent restoration, protective coatings application and logo branding performed on our anaerobic digesters. Thank you for a successful project”.
