Painting Critical Structural Steel
TMI Coatings painted structural steel conveyor supports for a large agricultural commodities company in Tacoma, WA. The project consisted of surface preparation and application of high performance coatings. TMI painted all connections of three 150′ tall support towers over the water. All towers were fully contained to prevent paint chips and other debris from falling into an inlet of the Pacific Ocean during surface preparation and painting activities. TMI Coating’s crew worked safely and efficiently completing the project on schedule with zero injuries. Terry Johnson of Temco in Tacoma, WA said “Very well done and Safe!”.
TMI Coatings was contracted by the Air National Guard to abrasive blast and paint the exterior steel structure of aircraft hangars at their facility. The existing paint was lead based paint requiring strict worker protections and environmental controls. Additionally, the continuous occupation and use of the surrounding hangar and office areas were maintained throughout the work. Scaffolding was erected and the structure was fully contained to collect all dust and debris during sandblasting. Negative air pressure within the containment was maintained by use of dust collectors. The entire structure was primed with a zinc rich organic primer, high solids epoxy intermediate coat, and finish coat of urethane.
