Waterproofing Metal Silos

To reduce corrosion and seal the floor/tank juncture of metal silos TMI Coatings installs elastomeric waterproof coating. To seal along the ground floor/silo juncture of several metal silos used to store plastic pellets TMI began by removing the loose caulk and debris and then cleaned the substrate. We then installed a urethane-based waterproof coating to the floor/wall juncture approximately 1’ up onto the steel and 1’ out onto the concrete. The urethane-based waterproof coating adheres and bridges between common construction materials such as concrete, steel and wood.  The coating has very good chemical resistance toward acids, oxidizing agents and also alkali solutions.  This coating expands and contracts and therefore will not crack, chip or peel due to temperature changes.
