Missing bottom paint available again

Jun 22, 2017 by Triton Staff

Houston, Texas-based AkzoNobel has reintroduced its antifouling bottom paints are back on the marktet following a three-year, industry-wide raw material shortage. Interlux Micron Extra and Ultra with Biolux are now available for the U.S. and Caribbean markets.
Micron Extra is a polishing antifouling that incorporates Biolux technology to control slime and algae.

Ultra with Biolux is formulated for high fouling areas and has a fast-dry formula, which allows boats to be painted and launched the same day. The VOC-compliant, low emissions formula reduces solvent emissions, the company said.

During the initial re-introduction period, both products will be available in blue and black, with other colors available this fall. For more information, visit www.yachtpaint.com.
