International Intergard 1735 is a tough, hard wearing chemically resistant epoxy finish suitable for most circumstances where the odour or emissions from solvent based coatings are unacceptable. For use on structural steel and equipment in a range of aggressive environments including those found in chemical and petrochemical plants, pulp and paper mills and power stations in both new construction and industrial maintenance situations, under controlled conditions.
Also suitable for application to correctly prepared concrete floors and walkways.
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. Strict adherence to all cleanliness standards is essential for application of water based coatings.
Intergard 1735 should always be applied over a recommended anti-corrosive coating scheme. The primer surface should be dry and free from all contamination and Intergard 1735 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 (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6, Abrasive Blasting, or SSPC-SP11, Power Tool Cleaning) and patch primed prior to the application of Intergard 1735.
Plaster, Cement Render, Concrete etc.
Concrete should be cured for a minimum of 28 days prior to coating. The moisture content of the concrete should be below 6%. All surfaces should be clean, dry and free from curing compounds, release agents, trowelling compounds, surface hardeners, efflorescence, grease, oil, dirt, old coatings and loose or disintegrating concrete. All poured and precast concrete must also be sweep blasted (preferred) or acid etched to remove laitence. Surface should be clean, dry and free from contamination. Remove old, loose or flaking paint. Fill and sand minor defects.
Damp patches, oil staining, bitumen bleed, nicotine deposits, efflorescence and rust discolouration must either be treated at source, or better, the cause of such stains/defects removed. Existing mould, algae and other growth must be killed before commencing work. Domestic strength bleach diluted 1:4 with water or a proprietary fungicide solution should be used. Two treatments may be necessary, after which the area must be washed down and scrubbed to remove residues. Ideally, to prevent future infestations the conditions which support growth should be identified and cure sought.
