Paints containing the small particle copper pyrithione exhibit improved antifouling performance in cold water, as compared to paint containing larger particle copper pyrithione.

  • Patent number: 7442240
    Abstract: An alkoxylpropyl isothiazolinone of formula: C6H6Cl2NO2SR, in which R is CH3, CH2CH3, CH(CH3)2, CH2CH2CH2CH3, CH2CH2OCH3 or CH2CH2OC6H5Cl. A method for preparing the isothiazolinone by reacting sodium polysulphide with methyl acrylate to obtain dimethyl dithiodipropionate, followed by aminolysis with alkoxyl propylamine to obtain N,N?-dialkoxylpropyldithio-dipropionamide, which is then reacted with sulfuric chloride. The alkoxylpropyl-isothiazolinone of the invention can be used for preparing marine antifouling paint coating as antifoulant, and also used as bactericide.

  • Patent number: 7361215
    Abstract: A material and method for treating timber. The material comprises a preservative and a carrier. The carrier is selected such that it remains mobile within the wood and provides for migration of the preservative within the treated wood. By providing a carrier which is mobile within the wood, the timber has a ‘self healing’ effect wherein the carrier/preservative migrates to any freshly cut or exposed surface of the wood to thereby redistribute and treat such a surface within the preservative and hence maintain integrity of a treatment envelope surrounding the wood.
