International Intercure 384 is a two component, high solids, low VOC epoxy micaceous iron oxide intermediate coating offering excellent barrier protection, low temperature cure and rapid overcoating properties.
International Intercure 384 is formulated as a high build intermediate to provide excellent barrier protection as part of a high performance system in aggressive environments including offshore structures, bridges, chemical and petrochemical plants and power stations.
The incorporation of plate-like micaceous iron oxide pigment both increases the barrier effect and improves long term overcoating properties of the system making this material ideally suitable for application in the fabrication shop, prior to shipping, with final overcoating at site. The rapid curing and overcoating properties of Intercure 384 provide production flexibility, making this product suitable for use both in new construction and on site as a maintenance coating. Pigmented with micaceous iron oxide to comply with the requirements of BS5493:1977.
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 384, 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
Shop Primed Steel
Weld seams and damaged areas should be blast cleaned to Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPCSP6. If the shop primer shows extensive or widely scattered breakdown overall sweep blasting may be necessary.
Metallic Zinc Primed Surfaces
Ensure that the surface of the primer is clean, dry and free from contamination and zinc salts before application of Intercure 384. Ensure zinc primers are fully cured before overcoating.
Apply using airless spray or air spray. Use a brush or roller for small areas only.
