Interlux® will introduce a new addition to its premier performance Micron antifouling line – Micron® CF (Copper-Free) – at the 2012 International Boatbuilders’ Exposition & Conference (IBEX), October 2-4, 2012 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville (booth 2239).
Micron CF not only offers best-in-class performance in the copper-free category of paints, it also offers the longevity that boat owners have come to expect from traditional copper-based antifoulings. By specifying and using Micron CF, a boat yard or marina gets to experience the benefits of a copper-free product, while ensuring complete satisfaction in performance.
Like the rest of the Interlux Micron Technology line, Micron CF provides multi-seasonal performance, reduced maintenance and the ability to haul and re-launch without the need to repaint. The self-smoothing characteristics of the paint help maximize fuel efficiencies for the boat owner.
With the environment in mind, Micron CF is also formulated using less solvent, which means it meets the VOC regulations in all of the US.
“We’re offering Micron CF in bright, crisp colors that will not discolor at the waterline, like traditional antifoulings do. We have evolved the Micron line of paints to now include this copper-free formula with premium performance. It represents a significant step-change in development for Interlux. With the use of Econea, a copper replacement technology and our proprietary Micron Technology, we’re excited to present the outstanding performance qualities that only a Micron antifouling will offer, “ said Jim Seidel, Interlux North America Marketing Manager.
Micron CF is suitable for all types of boats, all substrates and all waters. It will be available only in the USA in gallons – crisp black, shell white, red, green and blue.
