Interlux Micron CSC Ablative Bottom Paint

Micron CSC multi-season ablative paint provides a controlled release of anti-fouling biocide at the surface that does not lose its effectiveness when the boat is hauled out of the water for extended periods of time. For a superior long-lasting finish, we recommend Interlux antifouling bottom paint.

Interlux Micron CSC is ideal for powerboats and sailboats. Its proprietary Micron Technology provides excellent, long-lasting antifouling protection against all types of fouling. Polishing will occur but at a much slower rate. Micron CSC reduces buildup of old coatings, minimizes sanding, and allows boats to be trailered and relaunched the following season without additional painting. Interlux Micron CSC protects against algae, weeds, barnacles, and other shellfish-borne fouling on boat bottoms and hulls. Micron CSC can additionally be used below the waterline in fresh, salt or brackish water as well as on fiberglass, wood and properly primed metal boat hulls and parts. While not intended for use on aluminum hulls or fittings, this product dries to bright colors.

Similar to Interlux’ Micron Extra, but with a higher solids content for added protection, Micron CSC is harder and wears away at a slower rate. As with the other Interlux Micron line paints, CSC offers slower, more controlled polishing a clear advantage that reduces old-coatings buildup while it minimizes the need to sand at reapplication. The formula uses less copper yet is more efficient than high-copper, hard-antifouling paints. Shopping for Interlux antifouling bottom paint? Remember that Interlux Micron CSC is a superior product that is suitable for use on all types of boats in all waters
