Product Description

Please note, this product has an expected lead time of 5 - 10 working days.

International Intercrete 4890 is a single pack, low VOC, water-based, modified styrene acrylic copolymer decorative concrete coating that provides excellent protection against carbonation and water ingress without entrapping moisture within damp substrates.

Elastomeric properties enable the system to accommodate hairline cracks and substrate movement while providing lasting protection. Adhesion is excellent to mineral substrates.

Best Uses

International Intercrete 4890 is best used as an anti-carbonation coating to prevent the ingress of carbon dioxide and thereby protect steel reinforcement in concrete from corrosion. Designed to be applied in two coats as a low sheen finish for the protection of concrete substrates in a range of environments. Vapour permeable in nature, it enables damp substrates to breathe and dry out without causing blistering in the coating. In addition to this, it has been formulated to inhibit the growth of mould, mildew and lichens. Intercrete 4890 is an ideal solution to provide lasting protection whilst being easy to repair and maintain.


All areas to be coated must be dry, free from all unsound material, i.e. dust, oil, grease, corrosion by-products and organic growth. Surface laitance and any soft, sandy or flaking material should be removed by mechanical means back to a sound surface. Techniques capable of achieving the required preparation such as wet grit or water blasting should be used. All Intercrete concrete repair mortars must be allowed to cure for a minimum of 72 hours. Concrete and cementitious screeds or renders must be a minimum of 10 days old and preferably 28 days old.

Concrete surfaces should be primed with a suitable primer prior to application of Intercrete 4890; see Systems Compatibility section for further details.
