TMI Coatings Applies Food Grade Elastomer Coating at Food Plant
Elastomeric coatings are ideal for ceilings and walls where chipping, peeling or flaking paint can’t be tolerated. Elastomeric coating is suitable for incidental food contact.
A large food plant with its headquarters in Minneapolis, MN requested a protective coating be applied to the Meat Test Lab and the Fruit Room ceilings. In the Meat Test Lab, the ceilings, I-beams, sprinkler piping and condenser pans were properly cleaned and prepared for the adhesion of the new coating. The owner selected a food grade elastomer coating for durability and longevity. With mechanical spray equipment TMI applied the coating to the concrete ceiling and steel members.
The ceiling in the Fruit Room was power tool cleaned to remove rust and primed with epoxy prior to coating. The ceiling area included the duct work, cross beams, boxes, hangers and conduit.The owner selected a food grade reinforced coating for the steel members to reduce corrosion; FIBERLIFE a fiberglass reinforced plastic consisting of a food grade resin and fiberglass mat reinforcement was hand laid up. The result of both rooms was a food grade protective coating that will not chip, peel or flake for many years to come.
