An Industrial Painting Project Completed by TMI Coatings

After the prep work was complete, TMI Coatings applied a primer/sealer coat to concrete silos 64’ long x 54’ wide x 110’ tall and a head house 140’ in the air at a grain facility on the river.  After the primer was applied, TMI applied an elastomeric coating to the silos and head house instead of regular paint.  Elastomeric coatings are waterproof and resist wind-driven rain due to their flexibility.  Large projects specified with an elastomeric coating come with a 5 year labor and material warranty guaranteeing the coating will not chip, peel or flake.
