International Paint, the brand for paint maintenance in the high technology sector of the marine and yachting.
A division of AkzoNobel, a market-driven, technology-based company, Interlux is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of high performance boat paint, yacht coatings and marine protection.
Formed in 1881, the Interlux® brand has become synonymous with the highest standard of care for all kinds of vessels and established as an integral part of boat building and maintenance.
For over a century, Interlux has been creating the most innovative coating solutions to protect, beautify and improve the performance of all types of boats. No matter where you are, in whichever waters around the globe, you’ll find Interlux offers high performance yacht coatings for both above and below the waterline including antifouling, undercoats, yacht varnish and many more solutions.
The success of our business has been built on two things: an ongoing commitment to understanding the needs of our customers, and, in turn, providing quality product and service solutions that consistently perform for the boat owner, boatyard professional or boatbuilder anywhere in the world.
Scientific expertise is at the heart of our business. We dedicate more people, technology and investment to our research and development programmes than any other yacht paint manufacturer in the world. With our dedicated yacht laboratories and our customer-integrated testing programmes, we have become the first choice partner for the world’s most demanding customers.
Interlux is dedicated to providing proven solutions that protect, beautify and reduce boat maintenance – we strive to ensure that the work we do not only makes a difference, it becomes a critical element of support for our customers.
Whether we’re in the lab researching and developing new products, or at sea putting our products to the test, we’re in our element. Getting the chemistry right is critical to us, as is knowing the subtle differences between people and water all over the world. Wherever there are boats, we’re right at the heart of the matter, making connections, solving problems, sharing knowledge…
