Interzinc 22
Inorganic Zinc-Rich Silicate
SURFACE All surfaces to be coated should be clean, dry and free from contamination. Prior to paint application, all surfaces
PREPARATION 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 a minimum of SSPC-SP6 or Sa2 (ISO 8501-1:2007), (or SSPC-SP10 for optimum
performance). If oxidation has occurred between blasting and application of Interzinc 22, 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 surface profile of 1.6-3.0 mils (40-75 microns) is recommended.
Shop Primed Steelwork
Interzinc 22 is suitable for application to unweathered steelwork freshly coated with zinc silicate shop primers. If the
zinc shop primer shows extensive or widely scattered breakdown, or excessive zinc corrosion products, overall
sweep blasting will be necessary. Other types of shop primer are not suitable for overcoating and will require
complete removal by abrasive blast cleaning.
Weld seams and damaged areas should be blast cleaned to SSPC-SP6 or Sa2 (ISO 8501-1:2007).
Damaged/Repair Areas
All damaged areas should ideally be blast cleaned to SSPC SP6 or Sa2 (ISO 8501:2007). However, it is
acceptable that small areas can be power tool cleaned to SSPC SP11 or Pt3 (JSRA SPSS:1984), provided the area
is not polished. Repair of the damaged area can then be carried out using a recommended zinc epoxy primer -
consult International Protective Coatings for specific advice.

APPLICATION Mixing Interzinc 22 is supplied in two parts, a liquid Binder base component QHA285 (Part A) and a
Powder component (Part B). The Powder (Part B) should be slowly added to the liquid Binder
(Part A) whilst stirring with a mechanical agitator. DO NOT ADD LIQUID TO POWDER. Material
should be filtered prior to application and should be constantly agitated in the pot during
spraying. Once the unit has been mixed it should be used within the working pot life specified.
Mix Ratio 3.1 part(s) : 1 part(s) by volume
Mix ratio is given for advice; always mix the product in the proportions supplied.

Interzinc 22
Inorganic Zinc-Rich Silicate
PRODUCT Prior to overcoating, Interzinc 22 must be clean, dry and free from both soluble salts and excessive zinc corrosion
CHARACTERISTICS products.
Surface temperature must always be a minimum of 5F (3C) above dew point.
When applying Interzinc 22 in confined spaces, ensure adequate ventilation.
The minimum overcoating interval is dependent upon the relative humidity during cure.
If thinning is required to assist spray application in warmer climates, (typically >82F (28C)), it is recommended that
International GTA803 thinners are used.
It is recommended that prior to overcoating a solvent rub test to ASTM D4752 should be undertaken. A value of 4
indicates a satisfactory degree of cure for overcoating purposes.
At relative humidities below 55%, curing will be retarded. Humidity may be increased by the use of steam or water
spraying. However, cure at relative humidities below 55% is more effectively achieved by incorporating the Low
Humidity Cure Accelerator*; some example overcoating times at 59F (15C) are detailed below;
Relative Humidity (%) 20 30 40
Minimum Overcoating Interval 24 hours 10 hours 10 hours
The Interzinc 22 Application Guidelines contain further information on expected cure times at lower relative
humidities.
Excessive film thickness and/or over-application of Interzinc 22 can lead to mudcracking, which will require complete
removal of the affected areas by abrasive blasting and re-application in accordance with the original specification.

Care should be exercised to avoid the application of dry film thicknesses in excess of 5.0 mils (125 microns).

For high temperature systems the thickness of Interzinc 22 should be restricted to 2 mils (50 microns) d.f.t.
Continuous dry temperature resistance of Interzinc 22 is 752F (400C) if left untopcoated, however, if this product is
used as a primer for Intertherm 50, the dry temperature resistance will be 1004F (540C).

Untopcoated Interzinc 22 is not suitable for exposure in acid or alkaline conditions or continuous water immersion.

This product has the following specification approvals:


AISC Specification 348-04 Research Council for Structural Connections Class B Coating
UNE 48293 (Spain)

Note: VOC values are typical and are provided for guidance purpose only. These may be subject to variation
depending on factors such as differences in color and normal manufacturing tolerances.

Low molecular weight reactive additives, which will form part of the film during normal ambient cure conditions, will
also affect VOC values determined using EPA Method 24.

*Only available in Europe, China, Middle East, Africa and Russia.

SYSTEMS When it is necessary for Interzinc 22 is to be overcoated by itself due to low dry film thickness the coating surface
COMPATIBILITY must be fresh and unweathered. A minimum of 2 mils (50 microns) d.f.t. of any subsequent coat of Interzinc 22 is
needed to ensure good film formation.
Before overcoating with recommended topcoats ensure the Interzinc 22 is fully cured (see above) and if weathering
has occurred all zinc salts should be removed from the surface by fresh water washing, and if necessary scrubbing
with bristle brushes.
Typical topcoats and intermediates are:
Intercure 200 Intergard 475HS
Intercure 420 Intertherm 50
Intergard 251 Interseal 670HS
Intergard 269 Intertherm 715
Intergard 345
In some cases it may be necessary to apply a mist coat of suitable viscosity to minimize bubbling. This will depend
upon the age of the Interzinc 22, surface roughness and ambient conditions during curing and application.
Alternatively, an epoxy sealer coat, such as Intergard 269, can be used to reduce bubbling problems.
For other suitable topcoats/intermediates, consult International Protective Coatings.

Intergard 251
Epoxy
PRODUCT A two component epoxy anti-corrosive primer pigmented with zinc phosphate.
DESCRIPTION

INTENDED USES For use on properly prepared surfaces in both new construction situations and as an industrial maintenance
primer for a wide range of anti-corrosive coatings systems for use in the offshore, petrochemical, chemical, pulp
and paper and bridge industries.

The fast drying and handling properties, together with extended overcoatability, make this an excellent primer
for factory application prior to full system application on site. Intergard 251 provides good abrasion resistance
which minimises mechanical damage in transit between the factory and site.

SURFACE All surfaces to be coated should be clean, dry and free from contamination. Prior to paint application all surfaces
PREPARATION 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 Sa2 (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6. If oxidation has occurred between blasting and
application of Intergard 251, 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.
Surface profile must be a minimum of 50 microns (2 mils).
Shop Primed Steelwork
Weld seams and damaged areas should be cleaned to a minimum St3 (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP3.
Optimum performance will be achieved with blasting to Sa2 (ISO 8501-1:2007) or SSPC-SP6; where this is
not practical, hand preparation to SSPC-SP11 is recommended.
If the shop primer shows extensive or widely scattered breakdown overall sweep blasting may be necessary.

APPLICATION Mixing Material is supplied in two containers as a unit. Always mix a complete unit in the
proportions supplied. Once the unit has been mixed it must be used within the
working pot life specified.
(1) Agitate Base (Part A) with a power agitator.
(2) Combine entire contents of Curing Agent (Part B) with Base
(Part A) and mix thoroughly with power agitator.

Mix Ratio 4 part(s) : 1 part(s) by volume

Working Pot Life 10C (50F) 15C (59F) 25C (77F) 40C (104F)
10 hours 8 hours 6 hours 3 hours

Airless Spray Recommended Tip Range 0.38-0.53 mm (15-21 thou)


Total output fluid pressure at spray tip not less than 155
kg/cm (2204 p.s.i.)

Air Spray Recommended Gun DeVilbiss MBC or JGA


(Pressure Pot) Air Cap 704 or 765
Fluid Tip E

Brush Suitable Typically 40-50 microns (1.6-2.0 mils) can be achieved

Roller Suitable Typically 40-50 microns (1.6-2.0 mils) can be achieved

Thinner International GTA220 Do not thin more than allowed by local environmental
(or International GTA415) legislation.

Cleaner International GTA822 or International GTA415

Work Stoppages Do not allow material to remain in hoses, gun or spray equipment. Thoroughly flush
all equipment with International GTA822. Once units of paint have been mixed they
should not be resealed and it is advised that after prolonged stoppages work
recommences with freshly mixed units.

Clean Up Clean all equipment immediately after use with International GTA822. It is good
working practice to periodically flush out spray equipment during the course of the
working day. Frequency of cleaning will depend upon amount sprayed, temperature
and elapsed time, including any delays.
All surplus materials and empty containers should be disposed of in accordance with
appropriate regional regulations/legislation.

Intergard 251
Epoxy
PRODUCT Intergard 251 is preferred for use with systems for chemical environments where zinc based materials can be
CHARACTERISTICS subject to attack in both acidic and alkaline conditions.

The maximum overcoating interval will be dependent upon the integrity of the exposed film. A film of 75 microns
(3 mils) dry film thickness will normally be overcoatable after 6-12 months exposure (depending upon the
corrosivity of the environment) provided it is adequately cleaned and any areas of mechanical damage repaired.

Over-application should be avoided as thick films will not be as good a substrate for topcoat adhesion after
ageing as those at the specified thickness. When using as a blast holding primer avoid over-application as thick
films may suffer from cohesive film splitting if subsequent coats are also over-applied.

Over-application of Intergard 251 will extend both the minimum overcoating periods and handling times, and
may be detrimental to long term overcoating properties.

When applying Intergard 251 by brush or roller, it may be necessary to apply multiple coats to achieve the total
specified system dry film thickness.

This product will not cure adequately below 5C (41F). For maximum performance, curing temperatures should
be above 10C (50F).

Surface temperature must always be a minimum of 3C (5F) above dew point.

In common with all epoxies Intergard 251 will chalk and discolour on exterior exposure. However, these
phenomena are not detrimental to anti-corrosive performance.

Intergard 251 is not designed for continuous water immersion.

Where a durable cosmetic finish with good gloss and colour retention is required overcoat with recommended
topcoats.

Note: VOC values are typical and are provided for guidance purpose only. These may be subject to variation
depending on factors such as differences in colour and normal manufacturing tolerances.

Low molecular weight reactive additives, which will form part of the film during normal ambient cure conditions,
will also affect VOC values determined using EPA Method 24.

SYSTEMS Intergard 251 is designed for application to correctly prepared steel. However, it is also possible to apply over
COMPATIBILITY approved prefabrication primers. Further details of these can be obtained from International Protective Coatings.

The following primers are recommended for Intergard 251:

Interzinc 22 (mist coat or tie coat may be required)*


Interzinc 52
InterH2O 280

The following topcoats are recommended for Intergard 251:

Intercure 200HS Intergard 345


Intercure 420 Intergard 475HS
Interfine 629HS Intergard 740
