Bottom paints and bottom paints for boats

Bottom paint is a covering applied to the lowermost point of a ship (hull) so as to get rid of growing organisms that may attach to the boat especially at the lower parts or to protect the metallic parts of the hull from corrosion. This is done to enhance the vessel's performance and sturdiness.
Another added advantage is the improved contact between a free flow mass of water and the hull of a speedy boat enabling the boat to sail at a much faster speed.
Modern bottom paints are composed of biocides (chemical substance that hamper growth of marine organisms), organotin compounds and lethal copper. Types of bottom paints SPC (Self polishing copolymers). It contains a resin known as SPC Copolymer. The chemical substance reacts with salt water and the result is the discharge of biocides in the entire life span of the bottom paint. The reaction takes place at any circumstance provided the vessel is in contact with salt water. Controlled Solubility Copolymers These types of bottom paints are partly soluble in water meaning it wears down when water passes across the exterior of the paint. The thickness of the paint reduces at a controlled pace resulting in the release of fresh biocide at the surface of the paint during its active working period. Ablative bottom paints A type of bottom paint that wears away with time when in use hence reducing the preparation and preservation needed when applying more bottom paints. They can be also applied over other bottom paints. Hard bottom paints
These paints dry to a permeable film that is filled with biocides, which percolate when in contact with water. When the release of biocides has decreased to a point that there is no more to be discharged, the paint remains on the boat. This type of bottom paint is highly resistant to scratch and rubbing.

Paint My Nails

...Analyzing Poem At first the only aspect that really stood out to me in the poem, I Shall Paint My Nails Red, was the acts of a woman talking about feminine things that woman like to do to change up their appearance. After thoroughly analyzing this poem I came to the realization that it was much deeper than that. Every line of this poem is a distinct statement filled with self-expression and confidence. I Shall Paint My Nails Red by Carole Satyamurti, takes the simple act of painting your nails and shows the meaning behind it. This poem hits home to me because painting my nails is something I enjoy doing with my grandmother. My grandmother has never gone a day without having her nails painted, and after reading this poem I understand why. To me, womanism is the main theme that Satyamurti is trying to portray in this poem and it is being shown through beauty, strength, and passion. Beauty can represent a numerous amount of things, and in this poem Satyamurti does a remarkable job at capturing the true meaning of beauty. “Because I am proud of my hands” (Satyamurti 2), after I broke this poem down piece by piece, the imagery in this line caught my eye. I relate the pride she takes in her hands after painting them to my grandmother and how I never see her go a day without having her nails painted. Although painting your nails is a simple thing, it makes you feel good about yourself. My grandmother walks with confidence every day and though it may not be just because of her......

Neo Decanoic in Paint Drier

...Alkyd paint and paint driers.† 1.1 Introduction 1.1.1 A brief history of paints and coatings[1-4] Paints and coatings occupy a prominent place in the cultural history of mankind. People have always been fascinated with colors and used paints to decorate and beautify themselves and their environment. Archaeologists found pigments and paint grinding equipment in Zambia (Southern Africa), thought to be between 350,000 and 400,000 years old. The oldest testimony of artistic activity was found in the south of France where some 30,000 years ago our prehistoric ancestors decorated the walls of their cave dwellings with stunning animal drawings. The ancient paints consisted of animal fat and colored earth or natural pigments such as ochre. Hence, they were based on the same principle as the paints that are used today - a binder and a coloring agent. Around 3000 BC, Egyptians began using varnishes and enamels made of beeswax, gelatin and clay – and later protective coatings of pitch and balsam to waterproof their wooden boats. About 1000 BC, the Egyptians created varnishes from Arabic gum. Independently, the ancient Asian cultures developed lacquers and varnishes and by the 2nd century BC, these were being used as coverings on a variety of buildings, artwork and furnishings in China, Japan and Korea. The ancient Chinese knew how to make black lacquer (the true predecessor of modern coatings) from the sap of the lacquer tree Rhus Vernicifera. In India, the secrete of the lac insect......

Study on Use of Chlorinated Rubber Paints for Machinery Bilges

...USE OF CHLORINATED RUBBER PAINT FOR MACHINERY BILGES 1. Introduction:- Maintenance of machinery bilges has always been a challenge to the maintainer due to poor accessibility and unavoidable effects of running machinery such as spillage of cooling sea water, spillage of fuel, spillage of lub oil, high ambient temperature and drainage of hot water below feed quality (in case of steam driven machinery). Coal tar epoxy paint (CTE) has been in use in these bilges. However the expected life of CTE could not be achieved, in many cases, as stringent surface preparation standards (Grit blasting to Sa 2.5) specified for the paint system could not be achieved prior to application of CTE. Creating sufficient accessibility to undertake grit blasting in machinery bilges has also been found to be extremely demanding in terms of time and effort, even during an MR when the engine bearers are thoroughly surveyed. Hence it can be seen that the ideal paint scheme, for machinery bilges, would be one which can accept the standard of surface preparation achievable by means of manual methods, in poor accessibility conditions, typical of a machinery compartment, often with the vessel afloat. Paucity of time required for boxing up of refitted machinery, critical for undocking, often restricts the possibility of undertaking painting in machinery bilges during the docked time. Chlorinated rubber based paint applied by brush has been tried out as an alternative paint system. This paper is a......
