INTERLUX Trilux 33 Antifouling Paint

Slow polishing system makes it suitable for fast, active craft as polish-through at high speeds is avoided

Bright-colored, slow-polishing antifouling, Trilux 33 is formulated to provide safe, effective protection for all surfaces, and especially aluminum boats, outdrives & outboards. Replacing Trilux and Micron 33, Trilux 33 is enhanced by the addition of booster technology in the form of Biolux. Biolux is a system that combines advanced biocides with customized paint resin technology to optimize biocide release and fouling prevention.

Trilux 33 is for use below the waterline on underwater boat hulls and parts in fresh, salt and brackish water and can be brush or roller applied. Spray application is recommended only for professional applicators who have all of the proper safety equipment including a full-face shield.

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

        Comments about Trilux 33 Antifouling Paint:

        I've used other anti-fouling paint formulated for metal, as anti-fouling paint designed for fiberglass does not offer any protection metal surfaces. When copper based anti-fouling paint is applied to anything metal, the copper is neutralized; any protection is lost. I've used other products designed to protect metal surfaces. This product out performed

          Comments about Interlux Trilux 33 Antifouling Paint, Blue, Gallon:

          I've been using this on my outdrive for several years. I keep it in a warm car in the sun for a few hours before using since it is a challenge to use at lower temps. The 216 thinner helps for sure. Follow the directions on the can. I usually skip the primer. Protects better than the spray product since you can put it on thicker.

                This product is easy to use on the hull and I like how it rolls and stays on even in colder climates. It works in all latitudes and provides a lovely protective shine.

                Comments about Trilux 33 Antifouling Paint:

                For the last 14 years I have always bought this produce at the store but they were out so I bought the produce on line. It was easy to do but the paint was too thick and did not go on easy. Matter of fact it was hard to paint. Be careful of the temperature when painting. I followed the recommendations but on the low end and found out that I should have painted at a higher temp. This has never happen before so either it was my fault or the paint was to blame.

                Comments about Interlux Trilux 33 Antifouling Paint, Blue, Gallon:

                Beats the spray version hands down! I have professional spray equipment, but you could do a bang-up job with a brush and a little 216 thinner. This is far more economical than buying the Trilux in a spray can. You are able to put on a thicker coat, which seems to last longer and stays more effective against growth. The best anti-foulant for underwater metal I've used in over 30 years.
