RELEASE MECHANISMS OF ORGANOTIN TOXICANTS FROM COATING SURFACES: A LEACHING MODEL FOR ANTIFOULING COATINGS
Fouling of a ship bottom or a marine installation is usually combated by using a coating which contains an antifouling toxicant. The toxicant leaches out of the coating and prevents organisms from settling on the protected surface. An empirical diffusion model has been developed which describes the leaching process of organotin toxicants out of antifouling coatings.
