Abstract : A nontoxic antifouling system is provided at ambient conditions on a substrate which has a solid release layer bonded to a solid bonding layer which in turn is bonded to said substrate. The release layer has excellent release property and is bonded to the bonding layer. The bonding layer contains a component which is believed to react with the same or a similar component in the release layer to enhance the desired bond therebetween. The bonding layer is tougher than the release layer but its release property is inferior to that of the release layer.
