    Product Description

    Interlux Micron Optima Bottom Paint

    Micron Optima contains Micron Technology in a water-based formulation providing excellent multi-seasonal performance in the most challenging fouling conditions. Micron Optima uses Activated Biolux Technology to block slime and algae. Micron Optima is low V.O.C. and low odor and being water-based, clean-up is easy! It can be applied over other water-based products and other Microns. Use Micron Optima on power and sailboats in all waters. 

    What is Biolux Technology? 

    Biolux is an exclusive Interlux technology for keeping the bottoms of boats clean by eliminating the collection of slime. The unique Biolux delivery system incorporates organic boosting biocides with powerful anti-fouling agents such as cuprous oxide. Biolux. This system is over 240 times more effective against algae than copper. These new bottom paints therefore offer the strongest protection ever developed against the full spectrum of fouling shells, weeds and slime.

    Preparation and Application

    Previously Painted Surface – Good Condition

    • Remove all traces of loose paint and contamination by sanding the entire surface well with 80-grit wet-dry sandpaper. Remove sanding residue.

    Previously Painted Surface – Poor Condition

    • Completely remove all old antifouling paint using Interstrip 299E for fiberglass and wood, and by sandblasting to near white metal for steel.

    Bare Fiberglass

    • Remove mold release wax using Fiberglass Surface Prep YMA601V following the product label instructions.
    • Fill any surface imperfections with Interlux Watertite following the label instructions.
    • Bare Fiberglass – No Sanding System
      • Clean the surface following the preparation procedure above. Apply one coat of Interlux Interprotect 2000E. Follow the instructions on the label or product data sheet of the primer used.
      • Following overcoating guidelines for the primer, apply at least two coats of Micron Optima allowing appropriate dry times.
      • Bare Fiberglass – Sanding System
        • Clean the surface following the preparation procedure above.
        • Sand with 80-grit paper. Remove sanding residue.
        • Apply at least two coats of Micron Optima, allowing appropriate dry times.
      • Bare Fiberglass – Blister Prevention System
        • Clean the surface following the preparation procedures above.
        • Sand with 80-grit paper.
        • Remove sanding residue. Apply Interprotect 2000E to a thickness of 10 mils.

    Bare Wood

    • Sand with 80-grit paper. Remove sanding residue.
    • Apply the first coat of Micron Optima thinned with 10% water.
    • Fill seams, if necessary, with Seam Compound Brown 30.
    • Apply 2 more coats of Micron Optima unreduced, allowing the appropriate dry times between coats.

    Application Method

    • Stir contents of each part prior to mixing.
    • Slowly pour Activator into the Antifouling stirring continuously with a flat bladed knife or stirring stick.
    • Leave to stand for 5 minutes for air bubbles to disperse.
    • Apply 2 coats per season on the hull.
    • 3 coats are required on the leading and trailing edges, waterline, rudder and keel. This is important for best performance.
    • To prevent premature failure, ensure correct amount of paint is applied using the coverage as a guide. Take care to apply all the paint calculated even if it means applying an extra coat.
