Abstract : Concrete test panels containing expanded shale aggregates saturated with various antifouling chemicals were placed in tropical waters, in Port Hueneme Harbor, at depths of 120 feet, 600 feet,, and on the surface to evaluate antifouling properties of the chemicals. Panels with mixtures of antifouling chemicals were more resistant to fouling than panels with a single chemical compound. (Author)
