Series 120-5001 | Vinester

Generic Type Novolac Vinyl Ester
Common Usage A finish coat designed for superior protection against organic and inorganic acids and sour crude when stored at elevated temperatures in insulated tanks. Sprayable lining for tanks and vessels. Provides splash, spillage and fume protection for structural surfaces and secondary containment. Note: Contact your Tnemec representative or Tnemec Technical Services with specific chemical exposures.
Colors 5001 Gray. Color change will occur when Series 120 is exposed to sunlight; also, batch-to-batch color variations can be expected.
Finish Semi-gloss
Surfacer/Filler/Patcher Series 215, 218. Note: Prime coat of 120-5002 is required over surfacer/filler/patcher prior to application of 120-5001.
Primers Prepared Bare Concrete and Steel: Series 120-5002
Intermediate Series 237SC, 239SC, 252SC, 270
Volume Solids Theoretical 89% (mixed). Series 120 Vinester system contains a reactive monomer and some loss will occur during application and cure. Actual solids by volume will vary depending upon temperature and air movement. See Practical Coverage Rates.
Recommended DFT 12.0 to 18.0 mils (305 to 455 microns) per coat (minimum of one coat 5002 primer and one coat 5001 finish coat).
Curing Time
Temperature To Handle To Recoat Immersion
