A new antifouling principle based on no-release coatings Hans Elwing, Professor Ph.D. Dep. of Chemistry and Mol. Biol. University of Gothenburg Sweden The Barnacle - our target Algae, slime and other animals are also important biofoulers but not as serious as barnacles. The Barnacle A crustacean, present in all marine environments Destroy coatings by penetration Typical fouling on a sailing boat in Sweden (one summer season) Green algae Dramatic increase in Drag! Copper paint Barnacle Also a safety and seaworthiness problem! Barnacles prefer small propellers Polished Propeller lfalck Barnacle covered Propeller Barnacle covered VOLVO Penta propeller 20 % propulsion reduction Leads to ton extra CO2 and extra 9 milj EURO fuel cost in Sweden Testbed investigation of the hydrodynamic properties of barnacle covered propeller (SSPA, Sweden) Macrocyclic lactones against barnacle colonisation Macrocyclic lactons (MCL) are producesd by Actinomyces - soil living bacteria. MCLs are used as pesticides, crop protection and anti-parasitic drugs. Two international anti-fouling projects: 1. Christine Kritikou (PI and CEO, ENTARCO SA) Greece. They use spinosad: 2. Hans Elwing (PI) Göteborg University, Sweden. We use Avermectins subform: Ivermectin MCL are highly toxic to most crustaceans, non-toxic to mammals and very inexpensive Field experiment Ivermectin additive - three months Trace amount Effect of Hard and Soft Binders Non-erosive paint formulations used here for research purpose only diffusion Soft (butyl-methacrylate) Hard (styrene) Time Time The idea was to slow down leaking rate, by eliminating release bydegradation Penetration effects of barnacle in soft and hard non-erosive coatings. No Avermectin added. Front Backside Soft (Butyl- Metha- Crylate) See paint at side! See penetration! Hard Styrene No paint at side No penetration!

Swedish patent (2005) Boat experiments Control Surface Avermectin Surface Soft anti-fouling paint. Four month in Swedish coastal water. Photo and Boat owner: Jesper Eriksson 2008 Photo of propeller after cleaning. Outer propeller painted with Prop & Drev. Inner propeller coated with Prop & Drev containing 0.1 % Ivermectin. Lasse Bengtsson 2009 Control surface 3y Duration of Ivermectin containing coating. The hull was painted 2009 with Ivermectin (0.1%) containing paint formulations. The photograph above was taken in Oct days in sea water without repainting. Very few barnacles where present at the hull. Ecotoxicology The calculated toxicity risk of copper and Avermectins is about equal with regard to the concentration factor: 30% Copper, 0.1% ivermectin ( Corophium volutator) But The relative leaking rate of Ivermectin is very low compared with copper in erosive (rosin-based) paints. No leaking in non-erosive paints BUT FULL ANTI-BARNACLE EFFECT! The avermectins(ivermectin) are only toxic to the target organism, but copper is generally toxic to all (biofouling) organisms The avermectins are fully degradable and of biological origin The avermectins do not knowingly affect mammals copper does! Summary Ivermectin additive in trace amounts (0.1%) in soft coatings is a very efficient method of preventing barnacle colonisation for several seasons. No anticolonisation effect on hard coating despite release. The antifouling effect of ivermectin is related to the close contact of the newly metamorphosed/adult barnacle at the coating surface. The emission rates of Ivermectin to the marine environment is dependent on the coating and is (near) zero in our experimental coatings WITH A PRESERVED ANTI-BARNACLE EFFECT! In Swedish coastal water, ivermectin out-conquer copper performance in marine antifouling paint formulations according to small boat owners. A new surface sensitive selection method of biocide-binder systems have been developed (discovered). Its use may lead to development of paint formulations with very low release rates of biocides.
