Interlux Micron Extra Bottom Paint

Interlux Micron Extra is a self-polishing copolymer antifouling paint that wears down with use. Unlike some bottom paints, Micron Extra can be hauled and relaunched without repainting.

Interlux's slime blocking chemical Biolux is combined with cuprous oxide (copper) for superior protection against shell, weed and slime fouling. The copolymer compound is designed to self polish (or wear like a bar of soap) over time and use.

Extra can be used as a Multi-season antifouling if 2 coats are applied and an additional stripe on highwear area like chines, rudders, sterngear and any leading edges.

            This product worked exactly as billed.I not only had no slim build-up as with other simular products but enjoyed added fuel savings. This proves you get what you pay for and at a discount with Jamestown.I recommend you refresh at the water line / boot top every year

            Comments about Interlux Micron Extra Bottom Paint:

            Overall 4* Reduced Slim and algee build up better than most products I've used. The Life of the product was not what I would like. I applied three coats and checked mills as applied. Price of the product is not the best but Jamestown beat all suppliers. [...]. You see I was in the paint busniess for over 35 years and have sold Interlux Products along with other Hi tech coatings.
