Interlux Pacifica Plus Antifouling Marine Paint with Biolux

Interlux Pacifica antifouling paint is specially designed to battle slime and contains Econea to help ward off barnacles, algae, and other underwater organisms. It is formulated with a dual biocide antifouling that uses Biolux Slime Blocking technology.

Interlux Pacifica is easy to apply with a roller or brush. The overall performance and protection provided by Interlux Pacifica are directly related to the amount of antifouling paint applied. A thin layer may lead to premature fouling. A thicker layer will protect your boat much longer.  Interlux Pacifica is safe to use for both fresh and saltwater applications and is safe for all boats including aluminum, wood, fiberglass, and steel.

Interlux Pacifica uses Econea technology, which is a copper-replacement technology. It allows antifouling performance to work at very low concentrations.  It is safer for use on aluminum, unlike its Copper Oxide counterparts. Once emitted from paint film, it breaks down quickly. It is formulated to protect against more severe organisms.
