Interlux Brightside - High Gloss Polyurethane Topside Marine Paint

Brightside Polyurethane is a hard, high gloss one-part polyurethane topside finish. Excellent application characteristics yield that “sprayed on” look when brush applied in thin coats and is ideal for use anywhere above the true waterline. Brightside contains Poly flow 4000 resins and surface stabilizers to insure gloss retention. Its fluro microadditive makes it easy to clean, stain resistant, and gives it added abrasion resistance. Interlux Brightside is suitable for above the waterline applications: hull, deck, exterior cabin and trim, and interior cabin and trim.
