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.
Available in Black, Blue, Green, Red, and Shark White in Quart and Gallon sizes. Also available in Dark Blue and Brown in Gallon size only.
