What is Biolux®?

Biolux® is an exclusive Interlux technology for keeping the bottoms of boats clean by eliminating the collection of slime. The unique Biolux® delivery system incorporates organic boosting biocides with powerful anti-fouling agents such as cuprous oxide. Biolux® Technology is used in Micron® Extra, Ultra®, Trilux® 33, Trilux® Prop & Drive, Micron® Optima, VC® 17m Extra and new Micron® 66®. This system is over 240 times more effective against algae than copper. These new bottom paints therefore offer the strongest protection ever developed against the full spectrum of fouling shells, weeds and slime.
