Providing Solutions by TMI Coatings


TMI Coatings Inc. (TMI) business is simple – we are providing solutions to problems. Whether your floor, ceiling, tank, or other structure needs restoration, TMI is here to serve you. With over 35 years of experience and over 6,500 completed jobs, we know that no two projects are ever the same. PCA – Boise Paper of Lake Forest, IL reached out to us to help them fully restore large air fans. PCA wanted to ensure the performance and durability of these fans were top-notch. TMI went to work providing solutions to their issues.


  • Covered all sensitive equipment and placed poly to protect the work area
  • Abrasive-blasted each individual fan blade for cleaning using special abrasive
  • Used mechanical tools, such as needle gunning, as necessary to remove build-up


This unique job required a different approach compared to other projects. Instead of applying protective coatings, like we typically do, our crew blasted each fan blade, center drum, and interior of housing to clean and remove build-up from dirty air. This procedure will help the fan blades maintain a consistent weight – which helps keep the blades moving in unison. It is a proactive procedure that will increase the longevity of this unit. “Everything went well. The crew was professional, the project was completed on time, and the job site was clean. It was well planned out; I couldn’t ask for much more.” – Zach Conat of Boise Paper upon completion of the project.

With our locations in St. Louis, MO; Dallas and Houston, TX as well as our headquarters in St. Paul we can serve Boise locations in International Falls, MN and Jackson, AL.
