Interlux Micron CSC Ablative Bottom Paint

Interlux is the industry leader in ablative bottom paints and it is trusted by boat owners for their long-lasting quality products. Interlux Micron CSC is a multi-season ablative paint developed with an innovative copper-copolymer formula that provides a controlled release of the antifouling biocide. This means when the boat is out of the water for extended periods, the paint will not lose its effectiveness It also allows the boat to be trailered and relaunched the following season without needing to be repainted. For added protection, try Interlux antifouling bottom paint.

Protection against all types of fouling is easy with Interlux Micron CSC. It’s made with the proprietary Micron Technology, which provides long-lasting protection against all the harsh elements. Recommended for powerboats and sailboats, Micron CSC helps reduce the build-up of old paint coats and minimize sanding. Algae, barnacles, weeds, and other fouling have no chance with this ablative bottom paint. Micron CSC protects below the waterline in all types of waters. Safe to use on wood, fiberglass, and properly primed metal boat bottoms and parts. Not recommended for aluminum hulls and fittings.

Interlux Micron CSC is similar to Interlux’s Micron Extra but is harder and wears away at a slower rate. Micron CSC has a higher solids content for added protection. Just as with many of the other paints in the Interlux line, it has a controlled polishing, which reduces build-up and reduces the need for sanding, saving you time and allowing for more time out on the water.
