Interlux Pacifica Plus is a copper-free, environmentally friendly bottom paint with proven growth fighting power. This dual biocide antifouling paint combines Biolux slime blocker and Econea, a metal-free antifouling agent that blocks the growth of shell fouling barnacles, zebra mussels and other aquatic organisms.
The Econea paint film erodes over time to continually expose fresh antifouling agent. This biodegradable degradation won't harm the environment and lessens paint buildup for easy overcoating next season. Additionally, since Econea is not metal based, it can be used on and around underwater metals such as aluminum hulls, outdrives and running gear with less potential for galvanic corrosion.

Bare fiberglass (polyester or vinylester)
Bare fiberglass must be properly prepared to prevent delamination of the antifouling paint. Start by scrubbing the surface thouroughly with soap and water using a stiff brush, then rinse with water. Wipe a small area witha clean rag that has been wetted with Firberglass Solvent Wash 202. While the surface is still wet, wipe with a clean, dry rag. Continue until the entire surface has been cleaned.
Sand with 80 grade paper. Clean with Special Thinner 216. Apply first coat reduced 10% with Special Thinner 216. If necessary, fill seams with Seam Compound Brown 30.
Mixing and thinning instructions:
Shake and mix well. Stir continuously while using. Thin only when necessary with Interlux Brush Ease 433 or Special Thinner 216 (not to exceed 10% by volume).
General application procedures:
Apply at least 2 full coats by brush or (solvent resistant) 3/8" nap roller. If during the application the brush pulls or roller drages, use Interlux Brush Ease 433 to improve handling. Apply an extra coat to high wear areas, such as the waterline, bow and keel areas.
