Silo Restoration and Coating Services in Kansas City
TMI Coatings, Inc. (TMI) is a painting and restoration contractor that has successfully completed numerous silo restoration and coating projects. In areas where there is damaged or spalling concrete, we sound out to remove any loose or punky concrete. If there is any exposed rebar, we prepare the surface and prime using a metal primer to prevent further corrosion. TMI then applies a polymer-modified cementitious mortar to restore the surface to the surrounding plane. The mortar used provides further corrosion protection to prevent future expansion of the re-bar, thus reducing the likelihood of spalling. A coating is applied over all repaired areas to protect against future moisture penetration and further seal the repaired areas. This process has been used with great success on concrete silos across the Midwest.
Benefits of Silo Restoration and Coating
Our Kansas City silo restoration services offer many unique benefits, such as:
- The mortar used is non-sagging and is suitable for vertical applications.
- The polymer modification of the mortar improves adhesion and provides increased freeze/thaw stability.
- The mortar has an integral corrosion inhibitor to prevent further corrosion of exposed rebar, which prevents further metal expansion and eliminates the issue of spalling concrete.
- The topcoat used resists wind-driven rain and helps to prevent water penetration into the substrate.
