Industrial Painting of Silos, Lafarge North America, Inc. Case Study

A large industrial cement company requested TMI Coatings to prepare surfaces and apply primer and top coat to two steel silos, each 26’ diameter x 80’ high, including structural supports. The paint analysis indicated lead based paint so TMI being a lead abatement/encapsulation company had to take precautions for high levels of lead in accordance with OSHA Rules and Regulations. TMI pressure washed, hand/tool cleaned all rusty areas then applied one full coat of rust-inhibitive epoxy primer by brush and roller to ensure no overspray concerns. TMI top coated with a quality paint coating material suitable for tanks, legs, distributors and spouts.

Ron Thostenson said the quality of work completed by TMI Coatings was excellent and he has more work for us to do next year.

TMI Seals Silo Base/Wall Juncture Case Study

TMI Coatings was contracted to seal the silo base/wall juncture around the circumference of silos. Each silo was thoroughly pressure washed with 4,000 psi pressure washers to remove dirt, debris and contaminants from the area. TMI then installed new sprayed-in-place foam insulation to create a cant at the silo base to shed rainwater away from the base of the tank. The foam insulated cant was then top coated with a black urethane elastomeric coating in a thick-film manner to seal and protect the base/wall juncture. The protective coating forms a barrier between the tank base and foundation to reduce corrosion and water intrusion.
