Antifouling Surfaces and Materials: From Land to Marine Environment

This booklet reports the improvement of antifouling surfaces and fabrics for either land and marine environments, with an emphasis on marine anti biofouling. It explains the variations and intrinsic courting among antifouling in land and marine environments, that are in keeping with superhydrophobicity and superhydrophilicity respectively.

10) was reported to be less photochromic. Neither the ‘VIS’ values nor the ‘UV’ values are grouped to fall under the specific range of values. Some ‘VIS’ values are even close to the ‘UV,’ values questioning the very property of photochromism; however, the ‘UV’ values for the 11th up to the 20th cycle seem to be grouped rather uniformly, with their respective values of lightness (L*) well separated from the rest of the values. The CIELAB graphs may serve for quick analysis of photochromics, but they do not quantify nor confirm fatigue, as it is impossible to graphically associate ‘VIS’ values with their respective ‘UV’ counterparts for the each cycle.

Also, the range or the gamma of available colours is not broad enough because of the problems associated with synthesis of the compounds. Therefore, indirect thermochromic systems, which contain chromophore materials that react to environmental changes caused by heat, are widely researched and considered advantageous over intrinsic systems. Dyes alone used within these systems are not thermochromic, but will behave as such under elevations and depressions of temperature within their physical surroundings.
