Product Description

International Interzinc 697 is a two component, water based, high performance corrosion resistant primer for correctly prepared steel.

Best Uses

Interzinc 697 is for use on correctly prepared steel substrates in new construction situations. It is suitable for use where a high friction grip is required, in accordance with TL 918 300, Page 85. 


The recommended application method is Air Spray (Conventional). Brush or Roller use is suitable for small areas only. Please note: this product is not suitable for application by airless spray.

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 grit blast clean to Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6. If oxidation has occurred between blasting and application of Interzinc 697, the surface should be re-blasted to the specified visual standard.

Surface profile should be minimum Medium (G) according to ISO 8503-1 Any surface defects that are revealed by the blast cleaning process should be ground, filled, or treated in the appropriate manner.

Thoroughly flush equipment with International GTA991 thinner, or alcohol, followed by water prior to use. To obtain maximum edge protection and film build, airspray application is recommended. Application by other methods, e.g. brush or roller, may require more than one coat.
