International Interzone 1000 is a very high solids, low VOC, two component high build epoxy containing a high level of chemically resistant glass flake which imparts properties of excellent corrosion, abrasion and chemical resistance.
International Interzone 1000 is formulated for the protection of steelwork in areas where high abrasion and corrosion resistance are required including splashzone areas on offshore platforms, jetties, decks, bridges, chemical plants, pulp and paper mills, and water treatment plants. Excellent resistance to cathodic disbondment, gives good compatibility with both sacrificial anode and impressed current systems, making Interzone 1000 particularly suitable for the long term protection of sub-sea structures. As part of a non-slip deck system in conjunction with appropriate aggregate.
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-SP10. If oxidation has occurred between blasting and application of Interzone 1000, 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 75-100 microns (3-4 mils) is recommended.
Interzone 1000 can be applied over approved anti-corrosive primers. The primer surface should be dry and free from all contamination and Interzone 1000 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-SP10 Abrasive Blasting, or SSPC-SP11, Power Tool Cleaning) and patch primed prior to the application of Interzone 1000 Weld seams and damaged areas should be blast cleaned to Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP10. If the shop primer shows extensive or widely scattered breakdown overall sweep blasting may be necessary.
Interzone 1000 will normally be applied directly to correctly prepared steel, however, the following primers are recommended:
