Interior Walls Repainted on a 50-Year-Old Arena


Are your facilities’ walls cracking, deteriorating, or simply looking old? Interior walls can be subjected to just as much deterioration as exterior walls. Keeping your structure maintained and up to date allows it to last substantially longer – and look much better!

TMI Coatings, Inc. (TMI) has over 35 years of experience with restoring interior walls as well as water towers, tanks, floors, and any other complex steel or concrete structures. That is why Olmsted County has contracted with TMI to restore the inside of this 28,000 square foot concrete arena.

The arena’s walls had many layers of paint and were cracked, rough, and chipping away. Not to mention years of abuse from youth hockey! Our field crew assessed the condition of the walls and have begun sandblasting the interior of the arena to remove 90% of the old coatings and create a suitable surface to paint. Once finished sandblasting, we will apply one acrylic base coat, followed by two coats of latex topcoat in a frost white finish.


  • Protect items not to be painted with tape, poly, or foil to prevent overspray
  • Abrasive blast walls and stairwells to remove loose, non-adhered paint
  • Apply one full coat of Sherwin Williams Loxon Acrylic Block Filler by airless electric spray
  • Apply two full coats of Sherwin Williams SuperPaint Interior Latex Satin by airless electric spray


The Acrylic Block Filler coat is designed to fill pores and small voids to create a smoother surface for the remaining coats. The two coats of Interior Latex Satin provides exceptional protection for the ice arena with added stain resistance. The final coating is a gloss finish which makes the surface aesthetically pleasing. As a result of TMI’s efforts, this arena and its walls will be fully restored, absent of deterioration, and look new. We can do the same for your facilities.
