Anti Fouling Electro Coatings

Acronym: AFELEC




Intitulé du projet : Nouveaux revêtements électroactifs pour inhiber l’adhésion du biofilm marin sur des structures immergées en mer. (New AntiFouling ELECTROactive COATINGS to stop the settlement of marine biofouling on seawater immersed structures)

This 3-years project was funded by the ANR ASTRID 2012 research program.

The aim of this project is to develop new non-toxic or ecological AF paints combining selfpolishing properties and an AF activity without any toxicants release. New polymer coatings containing electroactive micro(nano)domains will be prepared and characterized for civil and military applications.
The work is an interdisciplinary venture to discover novel polymer binders for paint technologies with long-time efficiency, low volatile organic compounds and limiting biocidal substances. The two academic research teams (MAPIEM and MOLTECH laboratories)involved in this project therefore provide a mix of basic and applied scientific knowledge,which will significantly strengthen the current collaboration and the outcomes of the project.
