Product Overview

Multi-season, self-smoothing, copper-free antifouling paint with Biolux® Slime Blocking Technology

Micron CF is a multi-season antifouling paint that instead of traditional copper, uses Econea and Biolux Slime Blocking Technology to keep hulls free of barnacles, zebra mussels and soft growth. Micron CF's copper-free formula helps to keep our boating waters clean, and also makes it a great choice for boats kept in marinas where copper-based antifouling paints are not allowed.

Like other paints in the Micron line, Micron CF wears away at a controlled rate and self-polishes as the boat is used, which reduces drag and helps to increase fuel efficiency. An additional benefit of this self-polishing technology is that less sanding is required when the time comes to repaint.

Micron CF can be applied to fiberglass, wood, steel and yes-on to aluminum hulls, since the copper-free formula will not cause galvanic corrosion. Micron CF is high in solids, VOC compliant and available in five crisp colors: Black, Blue, Red, Green and White.

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.
