International Intercure 200HS is best used as a primer for steelwork intended for use in a wide range of environmental conditions including offshore, chemical and petrochemical plants, industrial buildings, pulp and paper mills, power plants and bridges.
It is suitable for overcoating within 7 hours in most climatic conditions, hence speeding up production and throughput in fabrication shops. It provides a quick cure even at low temperatures often encountered in maintenance painting.
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 Blast Cleaning
Abrasive blast clean to Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6. If oxidation has occurred between blasting and application of Intercure 200HS, 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.
International Intercure 200HS is suitable for application to 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.
A sharp, angular profile of 50-75μm (2-3 mils) should be achieved.
Shop Primed Steel
Weld seams and damaged areas should be blast cleaned to Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6. If the shop primer shows extensive or widely scattered breakdown, overall sweep blasting may be necessary.
Intercure 200HS will normally be applied to suitably prepared steel, e.g. blast cleaned. However, if necessary, application over prefabrication blast primers can be performed. Consult International Protective Coatings for further details.
