How do you know if you need a Hard Bottom or Ablative Bottom Paint? Hard Bottom Paints have a higher concentration of biocides, and form a tough coating that does not wear away. Hard Bottom Paints are generally recommended for boats that are faster and kept in the water. Ablative Bottom Paints have layers that slowly wear down over time, revealing fresh biocides, reducing oxidation, but due to its limited life, Ablative Bottom Paints are thereby recommended for boats stored out of water.

Interlux Antifouling Bottom Paints can reduce friction and improve fuel efficiency. Interlux uses metallic copper to achieve complete protection in freshwater or low fouling saltwater. Interlux features its renowned Micron technology that provides excellent, long lasting antifouling protection by using less copper more efficiently than traditional high copper bottom paints. Micron 66 is recommended for use in saltwater only, however Micron CSC, a best seller, works well in all water conditions. New copper-free environmentally-friendly Micron CF features Econea instead of copper and Biolux Anti-Slime Agent. VC17m is #1 for racing sailboats in freshwater.
