A review on protective polymeric coatings for marine applications

  title={A review on protective polymeric coatings for marine applications},
  author={Shatakshi Verma and Smita Mohanty and Sanjay K. Nayak},
  journal={Journal of Coatings Technology and Research},
The main objective of this review is to discuss the recent research on polymer-based surface coatings contributing to the protection against marine biofouling based on the knowledge available in literature, supplemented by means of figures, mechanism illustrations, mathematical models, and equations. A need for studies on the mathematical behavior of such coatings is emphasized, composed of quantitative evaluation of foul-release performance of coatings using mathematical equations of the… 

A Brief Review on Conducting Polymer Nanocomposite Based Epoxy Coatings for Marine Applications
