Brief descriptions of the release mechanisms for several types of antifoulant coatings have been presented. Equations were developed empirically in an attempt to show the relationship of toxicant concentration and coating thickness to the effective foul free life of the diffusion release coatings. The equations reveal several approaches for extending the effectiveness of these coatings against marine fouling organisms. It is felt that paints can be developed having an effective foul free life of several years if these approaches are applied.
