A coffee manufacturer in Port Allen, LA, encountered a water intrusion issue. One of their buildings allowed unintended moisture into the production area below, causing the potential to disrupt the quality of the product. TMI Coatings, Inc. (TMI) applied a urethane elastomer coating to the wall/base juncture for a watertight seal. Plus, TMI patched holes in their metal panel walls.

Procedure:

  • TMI washed with care to remove dirt and debris. After cleaning TMI hand/power tool cleaned surfaces to remove the loose coating and material.
  • Around the base of the wall/base junctures, TMI mechanically abraded to create a profile for new coating adhesion.
  • A urethane elastomer coating was then applied approximately 30” up the wall and 6” onto the base surface to ensure a waterproof seal.
  • We patched the holes with epoxy reinforced with layers of mesh and additional epoxy.

Outcome:

The maintenance supervisor of the coffee manufacturer was impressed with the entire process and stated, “The finished product looks very good. Christian and the crew did a very nice job. Additionally, we recently had a rainstorm and no water got into the building.”  Based on TMI’s workmanship, they said they would look at other projects in the future to partner with us.
