Description

Interlux ACT Ablative Antifouling Bottom Paint

Interlux ACT Antifouling Paint Ablative provides excellent season-to-season protection. Its formula includes Interlux’ Ablative Technology to remove fouling, eliminate coating build-up and with it the need for intensive sanding to remediate. ACT is highly effective to control shell fouling from barnacles and zebra mussels. To combat slime the paint contains additives that control weeds, slime, and algae growth to keep the boat bottom cleaner longer. In summary, Interlux ACT bottom paint protects against all forms of marine fouling and is recommended for use in fresh, salt and brackish waters.
