Published on 2007-12-11. Author : SpecialChem

UNION, NJ -- Interlux Yacht Finishes has announced that they have reached an agreement to supply their anti-fouling paint, Micron 66 to the combined fleet of almost 2,000 Moorings and Sunsail yachts worldwide.

The changeover has begun and it is expected to take 11 months to convert the fleet to Micron 66. Martin Challis, Group Technical Director for both the Moorings and Sunsail said, "We are delighted with this decision. In our many product tests, Micron 66 performed to antifouling standards we have not seen before. Its performance and durability will save the company money on a short and long term basis. We also achieve the benefit of being environmentally conscious as Micron 66 does not use TBT and uses less copper more efficiently than any other bottom paint."

The Moorings and Sunsail Vacation Charters are the largest yacht charter operators in the world, they are owned by First Choice Holdings, Limited and have bases in 43 countries.
