Interlux Micron Extra with Biolux 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.

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.

good history... mostly


We have used micron extra for a long time....17 years. Mostly it has been good... But not always. And it does rub off too easily when you need to wipe off grass etc.We have used in varying waters...north, tropical, salt, brackish etc. We have tried others but keep coming back.... It's better than most, assuming you want ablative, but could use improvement.

Been using this for years.


No grow. No slime or grass grows at water level. Multi year. You can pull boat for maintenance and put back in weeks later no issue.

I just bought my two gallons for this haul out.


I have been using Micron Extra for biannual haul outs since 2000. I recommend starting with one coat of color other than final color. On my boat, when the blue paint starts to show I know that it is time to refresh the Red.


Panhandle of Florida to Maine


Worth the price, easy to apply.


Very durable finish, stands up well for entire NE season. Learned about it while purchasing an Island Packet which had been in water for 12 months in North Carolina. Highly recommended.

Long Lasting


It's one of the longest lasting bottom paints I've ever used.

Boat bottom paint ... made easy!!!


After using a palm sander to take off old paint and prep & feather chipped areas, the paint rolled on easy and covered completely. Very nice paint!!!



Exellent paint, goes on easy!!


I used brush ease to help with rolling.

Framingham, MA


Results are very obvious from the start


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

Overall Good Product Interlux overpriced


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.
