For over a century this farmer own co-op has been making excellent cheese products. Their recipes and processes have stood the test of time but their ceiling beams have not. All metal structures eventually become subjected to deterioration and this facility was no different. Their ceiling beams were rusty and unattractive; food safety was a concern.
• For protection during the application, poly covered equipment.
• Prepared areas by mechanically abrading all loose, delaminating, and rusting areas.
• Due to high humidity, applied two coats of Amerlock, a corrosion resistant epoxy coating that is made for marginally prepared steel structures where sandblasting is impractical or not recommended.
TMI Coatings removed delaminating existing material in the food plant and areas with heavy rust. Access was difficult as all work was done overhead. The final result is restored ceiling beams – safety is no longer an issue.
