30 Years of AKZO NOBEL Micron Technology

FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, NOVEMBER 5, 2015 – Ask any boater which paint is on the bottom of their boat and more often than not, the answer is simply, "Micron."

For over 30 years, boat owners have relied on the performance of Interlux bottom paints with Micron Technology from AkzoNobel. Chronicled in the new Micron: Generations of Innovations movie is the story of four generations, their passion for boating and the passing down of traditions, which is so important to the boating experience and lifestyle. This short film premiered today in the Interlux booth at the opening of the 2015 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. (Yachting Tent booth 644-45, Bahia Mar Yachting Center).

“Continuous innovation is a proud tradition at Interlux,” said Matt Anzardo, North American Marketing Manager. “With each new advancement and generation of Micron Technology comes better performing, higher quality solutions. From the introduction of the first paint in the Micron family, Micron 22 in 1980, to the powerful, water-based Micron Optima with Activated Biolux in 2015, Interlux builds on past successful formulations to deliver stronger, longer lasting protection today to keep boats – and families - on the water,” he added.
