What do I do if I want to change the type of antifouling paint I am using?

Check for compatibility with old antifouling. If you know the current antifouling, you can quickly determine whether your Interlux paint choice is compatible by referring to the Boat Painting Guide (or on the Interlux color card).

Apply Primocon YPA984 primer and paint. If you don't know the current antifouling, we've a simple solution. Apply Primocon primer, our universal "tie coat" primer. It will overcoat any antifouling and establish a great foundation for your new Interlux antifouling choice. After the Primocon dries, simply apply your new antifouling.

Remove old antifouling. If you would prefer to remove the old antifouling, Interlux Interstrip 299E is a great solution. Gelcoat safe, Interstrip will remove several coats of paint in one application. After stripping, you are ready to prime and paint your newly cleaned hull!
