Safety is a top priority for many industrial companies including TMI Coatings, Inc. (TMI). We are constantly asking ourselves how to keep ourselves, our employees, and our facilities as safe as possible. This is no different for a power plant in the central U.S. Their tanks are surrounded by containment dikes to contain spills in the event of a tank rupture however, over time these containment dikes need repair. With the concern of safety in mind, the power plant turned to TMI. We were contracted by the power plant to repair their containment dike to prevent ground water contamination.
TMI removed the failing lining to get down to the original concrete substrate. Much of that original concrete was eroded away from years of chemical attack and needed to be rebuilt. TMI rebuilt low areas, curbs and pads around the machinery. This mortar was built with chemical resistant resins that would protect the concrete from spills. Instead of stopping there, a multi-layer reinforced system was applied using more of the same chemical-resistant resins. A final seal coat was applied to ensure this area could handle the harshest of spills for many years and provide the owner with the peace of mind this area will contain liquids in the event of a chemical spill or tank rupture.
When TMI products are applied by our skilled field crews, you can rest assured that your facilities will be safely protected from deterioration. Another successful project completed to a containment dike to ensure protection from ground water contamination.
