Roller Type for Bottom Painting

Getting ready to apply the barrior coating and anti fouling this weekend, hopefully. Been looking for rollers that are 'solvent resistant', as spec'd by Interlux, at Menards, but see none labeled as such. They have the normal polyester nap with a polypropylene core rollers they say are for latex and oil based paints. PurdyCorp - The World's Best Paintbrushes - Contractor 1st™

Is this what I'm needing? Just not sure what material I'm to avoid.

Thanks

I've been using the "wrong" rollers for 25 years and never saw one fail yet..

The Redtree brand yellow color foam roller would be just fine.
