... attachment of biological fouling organisms take place directly at the metal/water interface where the corrosion occurs, not in the bulk water. This means that the chemical environment in which the corrosion reactions occur in the presence of a micro- or macrofouling film may bear little resemblance to that...

... a number of problems associated with these systems across the nuclear industry in the previous decade, the NRC issued “Generic Letter (GL) 89-13” ( Ref 1 ). The overwhelming majority of the problems were the result of biological macrofouling, human error, or corrosion. In order to address these...

... seawater immersion. Polyamides tend to be economically priced and a good solution for expansive ballast tank areas. Amine cured epoxies are superior for general chemical resistance because of their highly cross-linked network, which provides a hard and dense film. Amines tend to discolor significantly...

... ). There is a widespread belief that copper and its alloys are toxic to microorganisms and therefore are not susceptible to MIC. This notion is false. Copper alloys are much less toxic to bacteria than they are to macrofouling organisms, such as seaweed or shellfish, and suffer severe attack by sulfide if...
