TMI Coatings was selected to prepare the surface and coat the exterior of (14) horizontal storage tanks including ancillary piping, valves, pumps, fuel skid equipment, etc. The tanks sizes were from 12,000 to 30,000 gallon capacity. The scope of work consisted of SSPC-SP2 hand tool cleaning, SSPC-SP3 power tool clean, SSPC-SP12/NACE 5 surface preparation by high pressure water jet. TMI prepared surfaces then installed one full coat of epoxy primer. TMI then applied a top coat of a high solids polyurethane finish coat as specified by owner. On the stairways, handrails, ladders, platforms TMI coated OSHA safety yellow in color. TMI then installed lettering as specified by owner.
