System and compatibility
Intergard 740 should only be applied over epoxy anticorrosive primers. The primer to be used will depend upon vessel area and application location. Typical primers include:
- Interbond 201
- Intergard 269 (as a tiecoat over Interzinc 22 on external decks)
- Intergard 400
- Intergard 264
- Intershield 300
- Intershield 803
- Intertuf 262
- Intertuf 362
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.
Intergard 740 should always be applied over a recommended primer coating scheme. The primer surface should be dry and free from all contamination, and Intergard 740 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. Sa21⁄2 (ISO 8501-1:2007) and primed prior to the application of Intergard 740

Loose or flaking coatings should be removed back to a firm edge and Intergard 740 or an appropriate primer should be used to repair the area before application of the full coat. 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 176 kg/cm2 (2500 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 GTA220/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 all equipment immediately after use with International GTA220/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. 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 ambient curing temperatures should be above 10°C. In common with all epoxy based coatings Intergard 740 will exhibit chalking of the film on UV exposure. 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.
