Pacifica PlusPosted on Written by Chris Landry
More and more marinas and boatyards are going green, and copper-free antifouling paint can help. Interlux’s Pacifica Plus uses the copper alternative Econea as an antifouling agent.
“It uses a controlled biocide release to combat fouling and Biolux technology to control slime,” says Bob Donat, Interlux vice president of marketing. “It erodes away over time, which reduces paint buildup. Boatyards will love the fast-dry properties.” Pacifica Plus is the first paint with Econea – a new growth inhibitor manufactured by Janssen PMP – approved by the EPA for use on recreational boats, says Donat. It will be available in several colors, including blue, black and red, and is compatible with most bottom paints. Being copper-free, Pacifica Plus is ideal for use on all underwater metal, says Donat. Retail price is expected to be about $229.99 per gallon. Contact: Interlux, (800) 468-7589. www.yachtpaint.com
