TMI Coatings Applies Food Grade Coating at Food Plant

A large food plant near Minneapolis, Minnesota requested a coating be applied to the Meat Test Lab and the Fruit Room ceilings.  In the Meat Test Lab, the ceilings, I-beams, sprinkler piping and condenser pans were properly cleaned and prepared for the adhesion of the new coating. The owner selected a food grade elastomer coating for durability and longevity.

The ceiling in the Fruit Room was power tool cleaned to remove rust and primed with epoxy prior to coating. The ceiling area included the duct work, cross beams, boxes, hangers and conduit.The owner selected a food grade reinforced coating for the steel members to reduce corrosion; FIBERLIFE a fiberglass reinforced plastic consisting of a food grade resin and fiberglass mat reinforcement was hand laid up.  The result of both rooms was a food grade protective coating that will not chip, peel or flake for many years to come.
