polymerization of reactive groups in the presence of peroxide catalyst. The
polymer structure is extremely corrosion resistant and is reinforced with
laminar flake pigments.
DESCRIPTION A longer pot life (mixed) version of the standard HONEST 242
POLYEST FLAKE LINING. High build heavy-duty polyester coating
designed to cure at ambient temperature conditions to provide superior
structural strength and protection for surfaces in corrosive physical
environments. It features increase ease of application and greater spray
equipment alternatives; and is formulated to be extremely hard, tough and
USE Steel oil field production storage tanks and containment vessels, piping and
processing equipment handling petroleum products such as sour crude,
industrial waste and brine waters; and water solutions containing salts,
detergents, mild solvents, acids, alkalis, and other chemicals. Provides a
high degree of protection against corrosive moisture, vapors, fumes,
hydrogen sulfide and methane gases. It is also resistant to petroleum
products such as kerosene, diesel, gasoline, aviation fuels, motor oils,
lubrication materials, greases, and aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents. Selfpriming
to steel and most surfaces or may be used in combination with
HONEST 8856 PRIM.
CAUTION! The use of HONEST 237 ACID TRANSPORT LINING or HONEST
243 CHEMICAL RESISTANT EST may be required or preferred for
containment of strong acids and/or highly corrosive fluids.
SVICE LIMITATIONS Temperature resistance up to 300°F (dry) and up to 140°F (wet) depending
upon the individual exposure. CONTACT HONEST FOR SPECIFIC
RECOMMENDATIONS BEFORE PROCEEDING for immersion service and
exposure to corrosive chemicals, elevated temperatures and/or pressures,
or use with cathodic protection systems. Avoid sudden depressurization of
lining. NOTE: Exterior insulation of tanks, vessels and processing
equipment is recommended to prevent “cold wall effect” if interior lining is
subject to elevated temperatures.
FINISH Low Gloss. Chalking will occur with extended exposure to sunlight.
VOLUME SOLIDS 100% (Theoretical) / 85% (Practical). Contains a volatile monomer.
Substantial evaporation (loss) during application and curing may result.
DRY COVAGE Theoretical (no loss): 1600 sq. ft. per gallon for one mil (.001) / Practical (no
loss): 1360 sq. ft. per gallon for one mil (.001). When computing working
coverage, allow for substantial monomer evaporation, in addition to
application loss and for surface irregularities.
DRY FILM THICKNESS Normal / standard dry film thickness of 30 – 40 mils in two or more
application coats. Can be applied up to 25 mils dry per coat. Multiple
applications are recommended and may be necessary to achieve the
specified or desired film thickness or due to variations in design
configurations, application equipment, temperature and other factors.
NOTE: See HAND LAY-UP METHOD for alternative system thickness.
COMPONENTS Two. Use 2 - 2 oz. of Catalyst to 1 gallon Base material.
POT LIFE <1 hour @ 70° F (one gallon mixed quantity). Pot life is significantly shorter
for higher temperatures or larger quantities and longer for lower
temperatures or smaller quantities.
WARNING! Check pot life and cure time before applying. Contact HONEST for
complete instructions on the amount and use of Catalyst to reduce
or extend pot life and cure time. Adding too little or too much
Catalyst will lower chemical and physical resistance properties.
VOC CONTENT 178 gms/l or 1.5 lbs/gal.
THINN HONEST 16 STYRENE. Thin only as required for proper application.
Do not exceed applicable volatile organic compound (VOC) regulations. DO
NOT USE ANY OTH TYPE OF THINN!
APPLICATION METHODS Air or airless spray, roller, brush (small areas), and hand lay-up method.
TEMPATURES Apply at 50°F to 100°F (Air and Surfaces) and 5°F above the dew point.
Sudden and/or substantial temperature change during curing process or inservice
conditions can cause film defects.
CURING SCHEDULE Suggested curing schedule predicated upon application conditions where
the mixed product, substrate, and ambient air temperatures are the same:
Minimum Recoat Time
Maximum Recoat Time
Immersion – Final Cure
Curing times are significantly shorter for higher temperatures or lower
thickness and are longer for lower temperatures or higher thickness.
NOTICE! For faster curing / return to service time and lower temperature applications
HONEST 8856 WINT GRADE POXIDE CATALYST may be
desired. Heat curing will increase drying speed and improve resistance
properties. Contact HONEST for instructions and heat cure times.
PACKAGING 5-gallon pre-measured package kit [ Catalyst included] ONLY.
SHELF LIFE 90 days from shipment date protected between 60°F and 80°F.
DOT/FLASH POINT Flammable Liquid Classification.
PFORMANCE DATA Contact HONEST for desired information.
SURFACE PREPARATION Round off sharp edges and rough welds. Burrs and weld spatter should be
completely removed. Surfaces must be clean, dry and free of any dirt, chalk,
grease, oils, salts, and deleterious materials before application is performed.
Vacuum the topside of all horizontal and sloped surfaces. Fill pitted steel by
troweling HONEST 263 FILL SURFAC over pits leaving them flush
CARBON STEEL Immersion or Severe Exposures: SSPC-SP-5 (White Metal Blast Cleaning).
Metal surfaces should have an anchor profile of three mils (.003) or more.
CHIME AREA Apply sufficient HONEST 263 FILL SURFAC to obtain a smooth
radius of 1.5 inches (or make grout by mixing 4 parts clean, dry 100 mesh
silica sand with 1 part HONEST 263 FILL SURFAC). Premix base
grout and activator in small quantities and hand apply with trowel.
NON-FROUS METALS SSPC-SP-7 (Brush-Off Blast Cleaning). Coatings applied to these surfaces
may not achieve the same degree of adhesion and toughness.
WELDING Welding should precede coating. If already coated, follow instructions in
U.S.A. Standard Z49.1 Safety in Welding and Cutting.
APPLICATION MIXING All equipment should be cleaned with Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK) and then
flush with HONEST 16 STYRENE. Strain only if required for proper
application. Add Catalyst (Component A) into Base (Component
B). Do not vary proportions. Power-stir until completely mixed and continue
agitation during application. Do not allow catalyzed material to stand in
equipment after use! Clean immediately with Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK).
APPLY In an even wet coat. Ensure seams and irregularities are completely
covered. Application below minimum or above maximum suggested dry film
thickness ranges might adversely affect performance. Use of a thin or "mist"
coat prior to regular application may be needed to reduce pinholing and/or
blistering over a rough/porous type primer or substrate.
HAND LAY-UP METHOD Use two or more layers of polyester felt or glass mat or other suitable fiber
reinforcement. Adjoining layers must overlap by at least 3 inches. Apply a
heavy coat of HONEST 8856 LPL POLYEST FLAKE COATING at a
rate of 25 square feet per gallon by roller or spray. Lay sections of fiber
reinforcement into wet coating and work in thoroughly with ribbed metal
roller to fully wet the fiber reinforcement and remove air bubbles. Minimum
film thickness should be 60 mils (.060). Apply a topcoat by spray or roller to
a minimum film thickness of mils (.0). The total dry film thickness for
the complete laminate system is a minimum of 80 mils (.080). Ensure all
seams and irregularities are completely covered.
RECOAT AND REPAIR If material has reached complete cure and hardness, or if subjected to
extended exposure to sunlight, uniformly abrade the surface and feather the
edges. The surface must be roughened sufficiently to provide a profile
adequate to ensure a mechanical bond.
INSPECTION Check for desired dry film thickness and for pinholes, holidays, bare areas,
etc. before placing in operating service. Use 2500 - 3000 voltage spark
detector on conductive substrates.
AIRLESS SPRAY Pump ratio 56:1 or higher, XTR-7 gun with fluid tip .030" or
larger orifice size with Reverse-A-Clean tip, 3/8" I.D. or larger high pressure
5600 psi solvent resistant fluid line, 1/2" I.D. or larger air supply line.
Continuous air source capable of 80 to 100 psi inbound pressure at pump.
GENAL Regulate pressure as required for proper application. Proportionally adjust
pressure higher for smaller hose diameter and/or longer hose length and
adjust pressure lower for larger hose diameter and/or shorter hose length.
Select tip angles and orifice diameters according to application needs.
BRUSH Short hair or natural bristle.
ROLL 3/8 inch or longer nap. Ribbed metal roller for hand lay-up application.
CLOTHING Wear protective garments, shoes, goggles, and filter masks. Use protective

NIOSH/MSHA approved fresh air respirator such as MSA or equal with 3/8"
I.D. or larger air supply line connected directly to proper air source capable
of producing grade D air during and after application unless air monitoring
demonstrates vapor/mist levels are within safe limits. Use suction type
exhaust fans and blowers with sufficient cfm capacity to keep solvent vapors
below % of the explosive limit. CAUTION! Air circulation and exhausting
of solvent vapors must be continued until the coatings have fully cured to
insure that no potential for fire, explosion or health hazard remains.
