International Interseal 670HS is a low VOC, two component high build, high solids surface tolerant epoxy maintenance coating. NSF Certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 61.
International Interseal 670HS is used for application to a wide variety of substrates including hand prepared rusty steel, abrasive blast cleaned and hydroblasted steel, as well as a wide range of intact, aged coatings.
It provides excellent anti-corrosive protection in industrial, coastal structures, pulp and paper plants, bridges and offshore environments in both atmospheric exposure and immersion service.
NSF Certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 61 - NSF Certification is for tanks greater than 100 gallons (378.5 litres).
The performance of this product will depend upon the degree of surface preparation. The surface 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. Accumulated dirt and soluble salts must be removed. Dry bristle brushing will normally be adequate for accumulated dirt. Soluble salts should be removed by fresh water washing.
Abrasive Blast Cleaning: For immersion service, Interseal 670HS must be applied to surfaces blast cleaned to Sa2.5 (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP10. However, for atmospheric exposure best performance will be achieved when Interseal 670HS is applied to surfaces prepared to a minimum of Sa2.5 (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6.
Surface defects revealed by the blast cleaning process, should be ground, filled, or treated in the appropriate manner. A surface profile of 50-75 microns (2-3 mils) is recommended.
Hand or Power Tool Preparation: Hand or power tool clean to a minimum St2 (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP2. Note, all scale must be removed and areas which cannot be prepared adequately by chipping or needle gun should be spot blasted to a minimum standard of Sa2 (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6. Typically this would apply to C or D grade rusting in this standard.
Ultra High Pressure Hydroblasting/Abrasive Wet Blasting: May be applied to surfaces prepared to Sa2.5 (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6 which have flash rusted to
no worse than Grade HB2.5M (refer to International Hydroblasting Standards) or Grade SB2.5M (refer to International Slurry blasting Standards). It is also possible to apply to damp surfaces in some circumstances. Further information is available from our Technical Team.
Aged Coatings: Interseal 670HS is suitable for overcoating a limited range of intact, tightly adherent aged coatings. Loose or flaking coatings should be removed back to a firm edge. Glossy finishes may require light abrasion to provide a physical ‘key’. See Product Characteristics section for further information.
