TMI Coatings Flooring Solutions



With over 35 years of experience and a commitment to doing work safely, on time, and in a quality manner, TMI Coatings, Inc. (TMI) has become synonymous with reliability and customer satisfaction.

That’s why we are excited to share our recent project in WI where we successfully revitalized the floors in a food processing facility by installing a floor topping over dairy tile.

The project focused on two specific areas within the facility.  Our goal was to create a seamless, high-performing surface that could withstand the demands of a busy food processing environment.  TMI provided a solution to upgrade a make-room and food production floor to fix areas needing repair, provide an employee-safe floor, and allow continuity in two high production areas.  To accomplish this, we implemented a strategic approach that included repairing and coating existing dairy tiles with a new floor topping. Additionally, we carefully addressed the need for cants – providing up to 210 lineal feet of 2″ x 2″ cants to ensure a comprehensive flooring solution.

The TMI team collaborated closely with the facility owner to ensure a successful outcome. To prepare for our work, the owner relocated movable equipment and performed cleaning tasks such as degreasing, washing, scrubbing, and rinsing the floors before TMI’s arrival on-site. They also removed drain covers, facilitating a smooth process for our team. This collaboration and preparation helped us achieve optimal efficiency and the intended results.

When preparing surfaces, we used HEPA vacuums and steel shotblast equipment to abrade the surfaces mechanically.   Edges were hand-prepped with diamond grinders.  TMI also used handheld grinders in hard-to-reach places, including around and under the make-room vats.   This process creates a roughened texture that enhances the adhesion of the new flooring system to the dairy tile.  Our attention to detail included securing loose dairy tiles and filling in missing tiles to maintain a seamless plane and a resilient flooring system. We took care of all debris generated during the project.

We understand that different projects have different needs. We assess each project individually and utilize various products based on those specific requirements. We use self-leveling material for joints and minor repairs. The cementitious urethane floor topping is then applied to the entire floor area with aggregate applied for slip resistance for safety.

Our goal is not only to meet your schedule but to ensure your plant or facility has durable floors that can withstand the demands of your operations.

At the completion of the project, the owner stated, “TMI’s crew worked hard to meet the tight downtime  schedule and did a great job in applying coating under and around all of the make room equipment.”
