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.
