TMI Coatings was contracted to repair and coat the exterior of a 21′ diameter x 180′ tall brick stack at a facility in St. Paul, MN. The stack had become an eyesore with pieces of brick missing and large holes in the surface. There was a safety concern due to chunks of falling debris.
After the steel bands around the stack were clean, a considerable amount of corrosion was revealed. The bands were primed with an epoxy rust-inhibitive primer for corrosion protection. An elastomeric top coat was then applied to the concrete/brick surfaces and the metal bands for a uniform appearance.
