Abstract : Aluminum objects which are designed to be submersed, submerged, or buried are rendered antifouling by anodizing the surface of the aluminum and impregnating therein, for example, an organometallic compound containing tin. Long term antifouling is achieved due to the low rate of leaching of the organotin compound, while adverse environmental effects are minimized. (Author)
