Osage U.S. Coast Guard

Our Field Coatings Team refurbished the Osage, a U.S. Coast Guard barge located in Owensboro, KY. The existing coating system was aged and beginning to rust and fade. We followed the USCG specifications to abrasive blast to remove existing coatings on the hull, freeboard, and underwater body. We also blasted and coated the sewage and freshwater tank interiors. Our team overcame the challenges of working on a drydock in the elements in the heart of winter, which isn’t ideal because of the weather conditions needed to blast and paint, but the crew was able to work through and have a successful outcome.

Roof Repair & Coating

In June, a customer was in need of a complete roof repair job. Our Field Coatings team cut out the blisters and repaired all leaking areas to ensure no water would get through. Afterwards, we applied a spray foam and elastomeric acrylic coating for the finishing touch. Our spray foam and elastomeric roof coating systems are proven to stop leaks, reduce building energy consumption, provide insulation, and improve structural integrity while costing less than a conventional roof replacement.

Restoration of Local Historic Covered Bridges

Our Field Coatings division restored two local historical landmarks: the Old Red Covered Bridge and the Wheeling Covered Bridge in Gibson County.  We were tasked by the Gibson County Economic Development Corporation with power washing the inside and outside of each bridge, to remove loose paint, rotted wood, dirt, debris, etc.  We then sprayed and back-rolled 2 coats of Sherwin-Williams Premium Exterior Duration Coating with the bridges respective colors.

Roof Refurbishment

Nix Mobile Coatings had a customer concerned with replacement of a leaking roofs at their facilities.  To save the customer costs an overcoat system was chosen to reduce tear off expenses.  The roof was pressure cleaned and deoxidized.  Some sections of the failing roof were cut out and overlaid with decking.  Approximately 1 inch of closed cell spray foam was then applied to create a monolithic (seamless) roof coating.   Following the spray foam application, we top coated the foam with a specialty polyurea coating to protect the foam application from environmental factors in the surrounding area.

This roofing system will have a life of 20+ years for the customer.  A full tear off project of the roof would have cost the customer 3 times the investment for our system while saving them weeks on installation.   We are proud of our team for their hard work on this great roof coating system and grateful to help our customers find cost saving solutions to keep them running safe and efficient.
