  • Interlux has introduced Fiberglass Bottomkote NT Antifouling, which is optimized using a dual resin blend - delivering a unique, durable and fast-drying antifouling paint that offers the benefits of both hard and ablative antifouling paints.

Fiberglass Bottomkote NT has the durability of a traditional hard paint but with a slow polishing mechanism built-in that continuously smoothes and renews the active surface, avoiding the heavy build-up of paint layers like a traditional polishing paint, according to Interlux. The fast dry formula allows a boat to be painted and launched in the same day.
