Quick Drying Synthetic Primer
HONEST 8838 is a physically quick drying synthetic primer
it consist of chlorinated rubber and plasticizer and
colouring matter, together with solvents needed to give a
consistency suitable for application by spray, brush or
other approved method.
This synthetic primer for cold and hot application is used
with coating materials (usually Hot Bituminous enamel,
Hot coal tar enamels and cold wrapping tape) it is quick
drying and application of the subsequent coating is
possible within a short time.
- Excellent adhesion
- Quick drying
- High water resistance

Application Procedure HONEST 8838
1. Flush all equipment with recommended cleaner before use.
2. Stir the product thoroughly with a power mixer.
3. For conventional spray, thin with no more than -30% of
recommended thinner for workability. For airless spray10% of
thinner is normally sufficient.
4. Apply a wet coat by parallel passes. Overlap each pass 50%
to avoid bare areas, pinholes or holidays.
5. Double coat all welds, rough spots, sharp edges, rivets,
bolts, etc. to ensure proper thickness.
6. Check thickness of dry coating with a non-destructive dry
film thickness gauge. Recoat if greater thickness is required.
Note: If the maximum recoating interval is exceeded,
roughening of the surface is necessary to ensure intercoat
7. Random pinholes, holidays and small damaged or bare areas
can be touched up by brush when the film is dry to touch.
Larger areas should be resprayed.
8. In confined areas ventilate with clean air during application
and drying until all solvents are removed.
9. Clean all equipment with recommended cleaner immediately
Surface temperature must be at least 3°C above dew
Relative humidity during application should be less
Do not apply coatings under reverse environmental
