The barnacle Amphibalanus (= Balanus) amphitrite is a typical marine fouling invertebrate, with adults releasing planktonic larvae that settle and further metamorphose into juveniles on submerged surfaces.
The control of biofouling can be achieved by a variety of methods but for an open system, such as a ship's hull, a protective paint coating is the most adopted method.
Three Egyptian researchers investigated nanohybrid particles as corrosion inhibitors.
The commercial pharmaceutical "Imodium”, which contains the active ingredient loperamide hydrochloride, has been shown to have biofouling control properties.
In the field of protective coatings, zinc-free pigments are proposed as promising anticorrosion compounds due to their good environmentally-friendly profile.
Experts have different ideas for further usages of the antifouling properties known from marine coatings.
The 9th International Woodcoatings Congress is being held at Mercure aan de Amstel hotel in Amsterdam, The Netherland, on October 14-15, 2014.
Different generic coating types have been investigated in terms of their surface protection performance under low-temperature offshore conditions.
The antifouling performance of secochiliolide acid, the main component isolated from Nardophyllum bryoides ethanolic extract, was evaluated for inclusion in rosin-based coatings.
A study focuses on the assessment of the erosion properties and antifouling performance of silyl ester copolymer-based coatings through laboratory and field tests.
