Silo Skirt Restoration and Roof Coating Project

TMI Coatings completed a silo skirt restoration and roof coating project for a plastic film manufacturing company.  TMI was contracted to remove the existing coating material and mechanically remove rust from both the interior and exterior of the silo skirting on seven welded steel silos. TMI high pressure washed the silos to remove the existing coating material and mechanically abraded all obvious rust areas. On the interior silo skirts TMI applied a fast cure epoxy designed to protect steel and concrete.  This same system was used on the exterior of the silo skirts along with a topcoat consisting of an acrylic polyurethane.  TMI then removed any soft or punky existing grout on the interior and exterior base ring of the silos and replaced with Five Star Epoxy Grout and two topcoats of urethane elastomer which is chemical and moisture resistant. This two-coat system was also applied to the silo roofs with added granules for anti-slip. The customer said this about TMI, ” what they did well was being thorough with their work and attention to detail.”
