International Paint LLC has announced a new protective semi-gloss primer finish for its North American market.

Intercure 4500 is a high-performance polyaspartic resin that acts like two products in one: a high-build primer or intermediate and aesthetic topcoat, the company says. The low-VOC coating was designed as an alternative to multicoat primer systems that provides corrosion protection and UV durability.

"In replacing alternative two- or three-coat systems, Intercure 4500 offers corrosion protection and aesthetic performance in a reduced number of layers," according to the Product Data Sheet.

Intercure 4500 acts like both a high-build primer or intermediate and a topcoat. The coating can dry in three and a half hours, International Paint says.

Two-component Intercure 4500 can be spray-applied direct to metal in a single coat or, for more corrosive environments, over a primer. The product cures in three and a half hours at 41°F, according to International Paint.

The coating is formulated to aid throughput in steel fabrication shops located in colder climates or looking to reduce heating costs, and Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) environments.

The product's multifunctional, rapid-cure formulation can help streamline the application process, saving materials and labor costs, said Chris Tiernay, International Paint Vice President, Protective Coatings North America.
