EVALUATION OF BIOCIDE – FREE ANTIFOULING SYSTEMS
The performance of biocide-free test coatings is directly related to the operational profile of ship: service speed, activity level and trading waters are decisive for the success of biocide-free antifouling systems. For antifouling coatings, a significant parameter into the environment is entry of active compounds into the aquatic system as they are leached from the paint film. The leaching rate is a critical parameter in an environmental risk assessment. The following issue describes a proposed method for calculating release rate of active compounds (ACs) from antifouling paints.
