Interlux Pacifica Antifouling Bottom Paint

Interlux Pacifica is a copper-free antifouling bottom paint that uses the controlled release of biocide to combat marine growth and fouling. Pacifica is approved for use on fiberglass, wood, and all underwater metal surfaces including aluminum, because of its copper-free properties.

Pacifica's antifouling performance directly depends on how much is applied. Used Pacifica below the waterline, on underwater boat hulls and on parts in fresh, salt and brackish water.

It can be brush, roller, or spray applied. Pacifica can be applied over most other antifouling paints provided they are in good condition and have been cleaned and sanded.

BARE ALUMINIUM: Sand with medium grade (grit) emery cloth to a bright metal finish and wipe clean. Apply one very thin coat of Viny-Lux Primewash 353/354. Prime with Interprotect 2000E/2001E. On sandblasted aluminum the Viny-Lux Primewash 353/354 can be omitted if priming with Interprotect the same day as blasting.

Wipe a small area with a clean rag that has been wetted with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202. While the surface is still wet, wipe with a clean, dry rag. Continue this process until the entire surface has been cleaned. No Sand System - Apply one thin, continuous coat of Interlux Fiberglass No-Sand Primer. Sanding System - Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue and wipe with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202.
