SPECIAL BRANDEDCONTENT SECTION Protecting Hulls Coast to Coast AkzoNobel’s Interlux has been cre-ating cutting-edge coating solutions to protect, beautify and improve the perfor-mance of all types of boats for more than 100 years. Because scientific expertise is central to Interlux’s business, the com-pany has committed significant resources to ensure it remains a worldwide leader in research and development. Interlux incorporates this expertise by offer-ing a full product range for boaters and appli-cators. This wide range includes Brightside, In-terProtect epoxies, antifouling paints, including traditional and water-based antifoulings; but it is the Micron Technology antifoulings that set them apart. Micron WA (Water Activated) is the newest member of the Micron Technology antifouling family. It is a polishing, water-based and fast drying formulation that provides multi-seasonal antifouling protection for all waters. Micron WA is a low VOC antifouling, with easy application and clean up. The innovative paint technology, Water Activated Matrix, in Micron WA, delivers crisp colors, while at the same time delivering powerful antifouling performance. “Interlux is dedicated to developing prod-ucts like Micron WA that protect, beautify and reduce boat maintenance,” said Matt Anzardo, marketing manager for AkzoNobel. Interlux operates within the Specialty Coat-ings business unit of global coatings manufac-turer AkzoNobel. “We strive to ensure that the work we do not only makes a difference, but that it becomes a critical element of support for our customers,” Anzardo added.

Micron Technology Unlike traditional antifoulings, Micron Tech-nology products are formulated to become smoother with use to reduce “drag”, hence reducing the coefficient of friction. Reducing drag results in less power re-quired to maintain desired speed, which leads to fewer emissions into the air. Micron Technology polishes (wears away) at a con-trolled rate, resulting in reduced paint build-up while eliminating the need for sanding be-tween applications.
