Specs

Product Overview

With its environmentally-friendly, water-based formula, Aqua-One dries fast for a shorter time to launch.

Interlux Aqua-One performance ablative is a water-based antifouling paint that delivers solid protection against all types of marine fouling. As an ablative paint, Aqua-One wears away with use, which reduces paint build-up and the need for sanding between applications.

Water-based Aqua One lacks the heavy solvent smell of solvent-based bottom paints and is easy to clean-up with soap and water. Aqua One has an indefinite launch window so you can paint and launch on your schedule. In addition to gallon sizes, Aqua-One is also offered in 3-gallon pails (Black or Blue) for large jobs and for convenient boatyard use. Aqua-One can be applied on powerboat and sailboat fiberglass, wood and primed metal hulls. Do not use on aluminum. Offered in Red, Green, Blue and Black. 

Key Features 

  • Environmentally-friendly, water-based formula
  • No heavy solvent smell
  • Easy application and clean-up 
  • Compatible over most antifouling paints

Get the right amount of paint:

Boat Type Bottom Paint
10' Dinghy 1 qt.
14' Outboard 1-2 qt.
18' Runabout 2 qt.
20' Sailboat 3 qt.
24' Runabout 3-4 qt.
30' Sailboat 1.5 gal.
32' Cruiser 1.5-2 gal.
36' Auxiliary 2 gal.
40' Cruiser 2.5 gal.
45' Sailboat 3-3.5 gal
50' Sportfisher 4+ gal.

Another way to determine bottom paint quantity is to estimate the approximate surface area of the hull below the waterline, using the following formula:

Length x Beam x .75 = Approximate underwater surface area in square feet.

Each paint has a “theoretical coverage” area, but most paints require at least two coats, so you can expect actual coverage to be no greater than half of the theoretical value.
