A Novel Acrylic Resin Containing Methoxysilane Moiety and its Application in Antifouling Coating
As concerning the high toxicity of organotin paints, the need to develop new environment-friendly antifouling agents has been highlighted. The paper mainly focused on the synthesis of siloxane-acrylic resin and its antifouling performance. The antifouling properties of resins were carried through by the colonization of benthic diatoms (Nitzschia flosterium) and ocean plates of offshore platform. The paper also disclosed that the silicone oil (5.5%, w/w) introduced to siloxane-acrylic resin was significant positive effect for enhancing the antifouling performance in Qingdao ocean.
