ORGANOLEAD COMPOUNDS IN ANTIFOULING PAINTS

Experimental studies of organolead compounds used as toxicants in antifouling marine paint formulations. Test specimens, based on two of resin-vinyl type and on one of oleoresinous type and containing varying amounts of triphenyllead acetate, tributyllead acetate, triphenyllead laurate and tributyllead laurate have been exposed at Miami, Pearl Harbor and Sayville, LI and evaluated after 24, 36, 42 and 54 mo. It was found that organolead compounds can be used to produce high-quality antifouling paints. They appear to be particularly effective against tube-worm fouling. No single organolead compound appears outstanding in all types of paints. All types show excellent potential when used to best advantage.
