Interlux Micron Extra Bottom Paint with Biolux Anti-Slime
Micron Extra utilizes the power of slime blocking 'Biolux' and controlled co-polymer anti-fouling technology to achieve comprehensive protection against shell, weed, and slime fouling. Micron Extra’s anti-fouling ingredients are chemically bonded into Micron Extra’s co-polymer matrix- engineered to gradually wear away as the boat moves through the water – much like a bar of soap. The polishing process results in constant, slow delivery of Biocides from a freshly exposed paint film surface and assures your boats consistent, long-lasting performance, and maximum efficiency. Micron Extra Paint retains its anti-fouling efficiency when hauled and can be re-launched without having to repaint. The longevity of Micron Extra is directly related to the amount of paint applied. Micron Extra is just another reason boaters keep trusting Interlux year after year.
Uses Micron® Technology to provide excellent, long lasting antifouling protection against all types of fouling. Micron Extra includes Biolux, to control slime. Hightly engineered, controlled polishing rate reduces build-up of old coatings and minimizes sanding.. Haul and re-launch without repainting. Micron Technology uses less copper more efficiently than old fashioned high copper bottom paints.Available in a low emissions formula: Micron Extra VOCIncreased fuel economy leads to reduced carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide emissionsBiolux® technology blocks slime and improves antifouling performance. Suitable for use on all boats in all watersLloyds Register certified as TBT-free

Why Micron technology?
Micron Technology is the basis of all Micron bottom paints and the formulations are second to none. Micron Technology was first introduced to the industry in the early 80's and has evolved into the class leading antifouling paints.
- Longest lasting, multi-season ability to haul and re-launch without repainting
- Controlled polishing like a bar of soap reduces paint build up, eliminating the need for sanding
- Micron Technology polishes to a smoother surface than hard antifoulings - maximizing fuel savings
- Unlike old fashion high copper bottom paints, Micron uses less copper more efficiently for longest lasting antifouling protection
Micron Technology vs old fashioned hard antifoulings
After many years of using old fashioned hard high copper bottom paints, the paint film continues to build up, become brittle, and starts to crack and flake off. Micron Technology antifoulings polish at a controlled rate and therefore will never build up. It is this controlled polishing that enables Micron to be used on all boats, in all waters, and at all times! No paint build up means that you will never have to remove old layers of Micron and spend precious hours or money each time you want to repaint.
Micron Technology and fuel savings
There's another added benefit to controlled polishing: fuel savings! The roughness caused by old fashioned hard high copper bottom paints creates extra drag on boat bottoms requiring the use of more horsepower. With extra horsepower comes extra fuel consumption, extra fuel consumption means more money at the fuel pump. There is only one way to ensure that the bottom is smooth and that is to choose Micron Technology. Micron Technology antifouling polishes at a controlled rate leaving your bottom smooth - remember the smoother the bottom paint, the lower the resistance; the lower the surface resistance the better the fuel economy.
Micron Extra with Biolux can be applied over any other hard antifouling paint after sanding the surface and most ablative bottom paints.
