Product Details

Interlux Fiberglass Bottomkote NT (New Technology) uses Dual Resin Technology to provide the advantages in both ablative and hard antifouling paints.

This durable coating prevents premature wear-through, yet it has a slow polishing effect that keeps the hull clean & smooth without the heavy paint build-up you can get year after year with a traditional hard antifouling.

Because Bottomkote NT dries so quickly, you can paint and launch the boat the same day. Suitable for all substrates except aluminum.

Info & Guides
APPLICATION AND USE

Preparation

PREVIOUSLY PAINTED SURFACES: In Good Condition Remove loose paint by sanding with 80 grade (grit) paper, wipe with Special Thinner 216. In Poor Condition Remove antifouling paint in poor condition with Interstrip Semi-Paste 299E.

BARE FIBERGLASS: Begin by scrubbing well using soap and water and a stiff brush. Rinse with fresh water and allow to dry. 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. Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Remove sanding residue. Wipe with Fiberglass Solvent Wash 202.

BARE WOOD: Sand with 80 grade (grit) paper. Clean with Special Thinner 216. Apply first coat reduced 10% with Special Thinner 216. Fill seams, if necessary, with Seam Compound Brown 30.

STEEL: Contact Interlux® for further details.

Method At least 2 coats should be applied.

Have been using this for several years
By ja from Winthrop, MA

Verified Purchase

Been using this for a number of years. Used to use a much higher priced product, then tried progressively cheaper paints, down to the ones that didn't work. This is the least expensive, but still quite effective, bottom paint I've found for use in our waters.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend

I buy this product every year
By Tony from Milwaukee Wisconsin

Verified Purchase

I live in a cold climate and my boat stays out of the water for 6 or 7 months. I do sand the bottom every year and apply a new coat of paint. I don;t want paint build up. I've been sailing boats since 1974 and started with wooden boats. I switch to fiberglass in 1994 and have used Interlux all those years.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
