INTERLUX
Micron® Extra Antifouling Paint

Multi-season, self-polishing, no paint build-up Micron Extra combines the slime blocking power of Biolux™ with controlled solubility copolymer antifouling paint technology to provide long-lasting, full-spectrum defense against fouling organisms. Micron Extra incorporates Biolux™ along with cuprous oxide to achieve complete protection against shell, weed and slime fouling. The antifouling ingredients are chemically bonded into Micron Extra’s copolymer matrix, which is engineered to gradually wear away as the boat moves through the water, much like a bar of soap. This self-polishing process results in the constant, controlled delivery of biocides from freshly exposed paint film surface, and assures consistent, long-lasting performance and maximum efficiency. Micron Extra retains it’s antifouling effectiveness when hauled and can be relaunched without repainting. The longevity of Micron Extra is related to the amount of paint applied. Can be applied over tightly adhered, sound, hard, conventional antifouling paints after thorough sanding. Multi-season, self-polishing protection with no paint build-up. Two coats minimum required. Not for sale in California and in States where prohibited by law. Type: Copolymer Recommended Usage: High fouling areas, trailerables, dry-stored, fiberglass, wood, and steel hulls Biocide: 39% Cuprous Oxide Additives: Biolux (anti-slime technology) Number of Coats Recommended: Two to three minimum Coverage: 110sq.ft./qt.: 440sq.ft./gal. Drying Time: To touch: 1 to 3 hrs: Overcoating: 16 hrs: to launch: 16 hrs. Thinner: 216, Model 117598
