Re: Polymers prevent fouling bottoms?
Bottom treatments need to:
- be effective against critters that actively try to defeat them;
- last for some time (preferably years);
- not damage the surrounding environment;
- be affordable.
So far as I know, the polymers being developed for the food industry still need to demonstrate point uno.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
