CERTIFICATION When used as part of an approved scheme, this material has the following certification:
l Food Contact - Carriage of Grain (NOHA)
l Tank Coatings - Recognised Corrosion Control Coating (LR)
l Tank Coatings - Classification of Ballast Tank Coating (Marintek)
l Tank Coatings - Ballast Tank type approval (GL)
l Tank Coatings - NORSOK M-501, Rev 3, system 7 (Marintek)
l Fire Resistance - Marine Equipment Directive compliant
l Fire Resistance - MSC61(67) Smoke & Toxicity (WFR)
l Fire Resistance - Surface Spread of Flame (WFR) - (IMO Resolution A653 (16)) Consult your International Representative for details.
SYSTEMS AND COMPATIBILITY Consult your International Representative for the system best suited for the surfaces to be protected. When using in ballast tanks, consult the Intershield 300 Ballast Tank Coating Application Procedures. When using in cargo holds, consult the Intershield 300 Cargo Hold Application Procedures.
SURFACE PREPARATIONS 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. NEWBUILDING
Where necessary, remove weld spatter and smooth weld seams and sharp edges.
Weld seams and damaged areas should be blast cleaned to Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:1988) or power tooled to Pt3 (JSRA SPSS:1984)
If the shop primer shows extensive or widely scattered breakdown, overall sweep blasting may be necessary.
For PVB and unapproved shop primer, the surface should be blast cleaned to Sa2½ (ISO 8501-
For optimum mechanical properties on typical iron oxide epoxy shop primers, grit sweep intact areas to AS2 International Sweep Blast Standards.
Abrasive blast clean to minimum Sa2 (ISO 8501-1:1988) or International Hydroblasting Standard HB2M. If oxidation has occurred between blasting and application of Intershield 300, 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.
For tank coating and application of Intersleek systems, consult International for the detailed coating procedures that should be followed.
Consult your International Representative for specific recommendations.
For use in Marine situations in North America, the following surface preparation standards can be used:
SSPC-SP10 in place of Sa2½ (ISO 8501-1:1988)
SSPC-SP6 in place of Sa2 (ISO 8501-1:1988)
SSPC-SP11 in place of Pt3 (JSRA SPSS:1984)

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
Thinner Not recommended. Use International GTA220 only in exceptional circumstances (max 5% by
volume). DO NOT thin more than allowed by local environmental legislation.
Airless Spray Recommended.
- Tip range 0.66 - 0.79mm (26-31 thou)
- Total output fluid pressure at spray tip not less than 211 kg/cm² (3000 p.s.i.)
Brush Application by brush is recommended for small areas only. Multiple coats may be required to
achieve specified film thickness.
Roller Application by roller is recommended for small areas only. Multiple coats may be required to achieve specified film thickness.
Cleaner International GTA822 or International GTA220 (USA)
Work Stoppages and Cleanup Do not allow material to remain in hoses, gun or spray equipment. Thoroughly flush all equipment with International GTA822 or International GTA220 (USA). 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 or International GTA220 (USA). 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.
Welding 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."
SAFETY 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.
