Interlux announced a partnership with Brunswick Boat Group in which Fiberglass Bottomkote Aqua was selected as the premier product in all Sea Ray, Meridian and Bayliner production.

"The paint system we have developed for Brunswick will result in significant manufacturing process efficiencies and deliver the added value of a high-performance antifouling finish to buyers of these new Brunswick boats," said Mike Kent, Interlux OEM manager, in a statement.

"The Sea Ray, Meridian and Bayliner production teams require a series of stringent tests, including sea trials, before they approve the use of new products. Fiberglass Bottomkote Aqua passed all of the appropriate tests," he added.
