Maximize Productivity with Intercure® 4500
Productivity and Time Savings
The high build characteristics, outstanding anti-corrosive, and UV performance of polyaspartic resin technology means that
Intercure 4500 can do the job of two products. Replace traditional multi-coat systems with a single coat either direct to metal or over a primer. Available for C3, C4, and C5-I ISO Environments.
Low VOC Emissions
The high solids and low VOC's formulation of Intercure 4500, combined with a reduction in the number of coats can help reduce overall VOC emissions.
Rapid Cure Even at Low Temperatures
This unique feature maximizes productivity and allows use in colder climates.

Ease of Application
Easy to apply with a variety of pump and tip sizes and standard equipment and retains rapid cure capabilities in low temperature environments.
Saves Energy
Intercure 4500's low temperature and rapid cure design reduces shop heating costs for facilities using forced drying equipment.
Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use a Polyaspartic product?
Polyaspartic's offer better drying times, throughput, gloss and color retention and lower VOC's than urethanes. Intercure 4500 allows for higher film build and ease of application.

Why should I substitute this product with what I’m currently using?
Provides a reduction in coats: one coat vs. a two coat system or a two coat  vs. a three coat system with higher corrosion resistance. When applied correctly Intercure 4500 will have no sagging and rework issues.


What makes this product unique?
Intercure 4500 is specifically engineered to maximize paint shop throughput; providing benefits to OEM’s and steel fabricators by minimizing drying time and number of coats.
