Interlux Trilux 33 Antifouling Bottom Paint

Trilux 33 is Interlux's new tin-free antifouling paint, ideal for aluminum boats, outdrives, and outboards. Use for bright color or bright white finishes on underwater metals.

Based on the latest Biolux technology for improved control of slime and algae growth, it replaces the older Trilux and Micron 33. Use Trilux 33 below the waterline on underwater boat hulls and parts in fresh, salt and brackish water. It can be applied by brush or roller.

While it is specifically formulated for aluminum boats, engines, and drive parts, Trilux 33 works quite well on fiberglass, wood and other underwater metals.

      I applied two coats of this product six months ago. The boat gets used about two times per month. It is a pontoon boat. When I pulled the boat for normal service I was suprised to see heavy growth of barnicals and a bad scum line on the pontoons. My local Marine dealer said this was the product to use for this type of boat. At [$] per gallon I would expect much better results. If anyone knows a better product please let me know.

        Use Jamestown's own product for lower units or outdrives. The interlux product is just messy to be around. Gets all over the boat.

          This is the best antifouling paint for aluminum hulls that I have found since they banned the tin formulas. I use an automotive primer over the bare spots then put on the Trilux 33.

                Comments about Interlux Trilux 33 Antifouling Bottom Paint:

                This paint protects reasonably well against slime. It is totally useless against barnacle and mussel growth.

                    Have used this product for years on my Marinette. Know from experience red color holds up better than lighter colors. Holds up well on power washdown at fall haul out. Can get several seasons depending up on amount of use. In cold or warm weather need to thin as will get stiff on application and built up too much with either rollar or brush. Recoated in '10. Will touch in '11 as needed after proper presanding.
