INTERLUX Micron CSC Antifouling Paint

With a higher solids content than Micron Extra, Micron CSC is harder and wears away at a slower rate but just like other paints in the Micron line offers the advantages of controlled polishing which reduces buildup of old coatings and minimizes the need to sand at reapplication. Uses less copper more efficiently than high-copper, hard-antifouling paints. Can be hauled and relaunched without loss of effectiveness. Suitable for all boats in all waters.

Not for sale in California and in States where prohibited by law.

    Interlux Micron CSC was applied by professionals two years ago and it is going to easily last for a third boating season. The boat cruises the Puget Sound and any growth that is on the bottom washes off in the first few hours of operation. It is not cheap, but three years' life makes it a good value.

                  Comments about Micron CSC Antifouling Paint:

                  I had a couple of coats applied by a professional and got two solid seasons out of it. Last year I touched up the waterline and keel and am debating if I can get away with it again this year but will probably do a full bottom paint. The boat is sailed in salt water.

                  Like any paint prep is really important with this one.

                      Put two coats on last season, the boat still looks great. Will be adding another coat this season as one more can't hurt. Easy to apply, resperator recommended.

                          This is the most expensive gallon of paint I've ever bought thinking this would be the most effective paint I could buy. Boy was I wrong. I've always had issues with Interlux, what do you get for the money?

                                This paint gives a solid two-season performance with two coats. I am on my third use in Long Island's Great South Bay. Appying is easy - prep is just a light scrape of loose paint after a mild wash (don't power wash). I think this paint is inexpensive when pro-rated over two seasons.

                                    Have used this product for years on the Chesapeake Bay and found it to be highly effective. Stirs and brushes/rolls on easy, masks well at waterline. I've typically gotten 2-3 years from a couple coats, with no bottom growth and just perform minor spot scuff/paint before each Spring launch. Lasts well in or out of the water.
