International Intercure 200 is formulated as a primer for steelwork intended for use in a wide range of aggressive environments, including offshore, chemical and petrochemical plants, industrial buildings, pulp and paper mills, power plants and bridges.
International Intercure 200 is suitable for overcoating within 3 hours in most climatic conditions, hence speeding up production and throughput in fabrication shops. Can also be used on site as a rapid curing, maintenance coating.
All surfaces to be coated should be 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.
Abrasive Grit Blast Cleaning
Abrasive grit blast clean to Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6. If oxidation has occurred between blasting and application of Intercure 200, the surface should be reblasted to the specified visual standard. Surface defects revealed by the blast cleaning process should be ground, filled, or treated in the appropriate manner. A sharp, angular surface profile of 50-75 microns (2-3 mils) is recommended. Intercure 200 is suitable for application to grit blast cleaned surfaces which were initially to the above standard but have been allowed to deteriorate under good shop conditions for up to 7-10 days. The surface may deteriorate to Sa2 standard but must be free from loose powdery deposits.
Shop Primed Steel
Weld seams and damaged areas should be grit blast cleaned to Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6. If the shop primer shows extensive or widely scattered breakdown, overall grit sweep blasting may be necessary. If the shop primer was applied over shot blasted surfaces, overall grit sweep blasting will be necessary prior to application of Intercure 200.
Intercure 200 will normally be applied to suitably prepared steel, e.g. blast cleaned. However, if necessary, application over prefabrication blast primers can be performed.
