Product Description

International Intercryl 525 is a VOC compliant, single component, water based anti-corrosive primer/finish based on weather resistant acrylic copolymer technology. It exhibits excellent colour and gloss retention.

Best Uses

Intercryl 525 is intended for use as a primer/finish for structural steel. It is suitable for use in a wide variety of industrial environments, including:

  • Bridges
  • Commercial Buildings
  • Infrastructure
  • Manufacturing Plants


The recommended method of application is Airless Spray, although Air Spray (pressure pot) is also suitable. Application by brush or roller may require more than one coat and should only be used for small areas or touch-up work.

Ensure all surfaces are clean, dry and free from contamination. Prior to paint application all surfaces should be assessed and treated in accordance with ISO 8504:2000. Oil or grease should be removed in accordance with SSPC-SP1 solvent cleaning. Strict adherence to all cleanliness standards is essential for application of water based coatings.

Abrasive Blast Cleaning
Abrasive blast clean to Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6. If oxidation has occurred between blasting and application of Intercryl 525, the surface should be re-blasted to the specified visual standard.
Any surface defects that are revealed by the blast cleaning process should be ground, filled, or treated in the appropriate manner.

Primed Surfaces
Intercryl 525 can be applied over approved anti-corrosive primers. The primer surface should be dry and free from all contamination, and Intercryl 525 must be applied within the overcoating intervals specified (consult the relevant product data sheet).

Areas of breakdown, damage etc., should be prepared to the specified standard (e.g. Sa2½ (ISO8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6 Abrasive Blasting, or SSPC-SP11, Power Tool Cleaning) and patch primed prior to the application of Intercryl 525.

System Compatibility

Although this product is primarily designed as a primer/finish for a water-based acrylic paint system, it can also be used for application as a semi gloss finish on a wide variety of water based and solvent based primers, such as Intergard 251.
