Interlux Bottom Paint
Pacifica Plus

Pacifica Plus is designed for those looking for a copper free antifouling. Pacifica Plus is a dual biocide antifouling that uses Biolux Slime Blocking Technology to combat slime and Econea to ward off barnacles and zebra mussels. Its ablative action reduces paint build up and helps to improve fuel efficiency. Because it wears away with use, the performance of Pacifica Plus is directly related to the amount of paint applied (thin film thickness may lead to premature fouling). Pacifica Plus is available in bright colors and is suitable for use on all boats including fiberglass, aluminum, wood and steel and can be used in all waters
