For use as a primer for the protection of prepared steel prior to the application of a wide range of products. Can also be used as a tie coat for application to freshly applied zinc primers to prevent zinc salt formation on weathering and to reduce pinholing of subsequent applied coatings. Suitable for use with controlled cathodic protection. For use at Newbuilding, Maintenance & Repair or On Board Maintenance.

System and compatibility
Consult your International Paint representative for the system best suited for the surfaces to be protected.
Use in accordance with the standard Worldwide Marine Specifications. All surfaces to be coated should be clean, dry and free from contamination. High pressure fresh water wash or fresh water wash, as appropriate, and remove all oil or grease, soluble contaminants and other foreign matter in accordance with SSPC-SP1 solvent cleaning.
As a Holding Primer for water ballast tanks
Immersion Service: Round all welds, sharp edges and prominences to a smooth curve and remove all weld spatter before blast cleaning. Abrasive blast clean to Sa21⁄2 (ISO 8501-1:2007). If oxidation has occurred between blasting and application of Intergard 269, 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. Minor areas may be prepared by power tooling to Pt3 (JSRA SPSS:1984)
As a Holding Primer for areas other than ballast tanks
Abrasive blast clean to Sa2 (ISO 8501-1:2007). If oxidation has occurred between blasting and application of Intergard 269, 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. Intergard 269 may be applied to surfaces prepared to International Paint Hydroblasting Standard HB2 which have flash rusted to no worse than HB2L for underwater hull/boottop or HB2M for above water areas. Minor areas may be prepared by power tooling to Pt3 (JSRA SPSS:1984)
As a Tie Coat over Zinc Primers
The primer surface should be clean, dry and free from all contamination. Areas of breakdown, damage etc. should be prepared to the specified standard (eg. Sa21⁄2 (ISO 8501-1:2007)). Intergard 269 must be applied within the overcoated intervals specified (consult the relevant product data sheet) To avoid pinholing over zinc primed surfaces, Intergard 269 should be thinned by 15-25% with International GTA220.
For tank coating projects, consult International Paint for the detailed tank coating procedures that should be followed.
Consult your International Paint representative for specific recommendations.
Material is supplied in 2 containers as a unit. Always mix a complete unit in the proportions supplied. (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.
Not recommended. Use International GTA220 only in exceptional circumstances. DO NOT thin more than allowed by local environmental legislation.
Recommended Tip Range 0.38-0.53 mm (15-21 thou) Total output fluid pressure at spray tip not less than 141 kg/cm2 (2010 p.s.i.)
Use suitable proprietary equipment. Thinning may be required.
Application by brush is recommended for small areas only. Multiple coats may be required to achieve specified film thickness.
Application by roller is recommended for small areas only. Multiple coats may be required to achieve specified film thickness.
Work Stoppages and Cleanup
Do not allow material to remain in hoses, gun or spray equipment. Thoroughly flush all equipment with International GTA822/GTA220. 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 all equipment immediately after use with International GTA822/GTA220. 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, relative humidity and elapsed time, including any delays. Do not exceed pot life limitations. All surplus materials and empty containers should be disposed of in accordance with appropriate regional regulations/legislation.
In the event welding or flame cutting is performed on metal coated with this product, dust and fumes will be emitted which will require the use of appropriate personal protective equipment and adequate local exhaust ventilation. In North America do so in accordance with instruction in ANSI/ASC Z49.1 "Safety in Welding and Cutting."
All work involving the application and use of this product should be performed in compliance with all relevant national Health, Safety & Environmental standards and regulations. Prior to use, obtain, consult and follow the Material Safety Data Sheet for this product concerning health and safety information. Read and follow all precautionary notices on the Material Safety Data Sheet and container labels. If you do not fully understand these warnings and instructions or if you can not strictly comply with them, do not use this product. Proper ventilation and protective measures must be provided during application and drying to keep solvent vapour concentrations within safe limits and to protect against toxic or oxygen deficient hazards. Take precautions to avoid skin and eye contact (ie. gloves, goggles, face masks, barrier creams etc.) Actual safety measures are dependant on application methods and work environment.
This product will not cure adequately below 5°C. For maximum performance, the curing temperature should be above 10°C. The history and age of the steel and the method of working can have a significant effect on the paint consumption. Overcoating information is given for guidance only and is subject to regional variation depending upon local climate and environmental conditions. Consult your local International Paint representative for specific recommendations. Apply in good weather. Temperature of the surface to be coated must be at least 3°C above the dew point. For optimum application properties bring the material to 21-27°C, unless specifically instructed otherwise, prior to mixing and application. Unmixed material (in closed containers) should be maintained in protected storage in accordance with information given in the STORAGE Section of this data sheet. Technical and application data herein is for the purpose of establishing a general guideline of the coating application procedures. Test performance results were obtained in a controlled laboratory environment and International Paint makes no claim that the exhibited published test results, or any other tests, accurately represent results found in all field environments. As application, environmental and design factors can vary significantly, due care should be exercised in the selection, verification of performance and use of the coating. In the overcoating data section 'ext' = extended overcoating period. Please refer to our Marine Painting Guide - Definitions and Abbreviations available on our website.
