options in the future.
Antimicrobial wraps: Protecting mooring chains from MIC is a particular challenge; the nooks and crannies in the chain provide ideal conditions for bacterial adhesion, but chemical biocides
cannot be applied in the open ocean.

These acts were written to prevent citizens from suing for chemical trespass, and this immunity from liability promotes reckless biocide
The posts were selected for later installation in a field test and, thus, were chosen based on having no face heartwood, a pith in about the center of the post, a heartwood area (if present) of no more than 30 mm in diameter, and a sapwood zone on the outer edge at least 30 mm deep, with good biocide
penetration of 20 mm or deeper based on visually examining the transverse ends.

Growth will be additionally spurred by new rules regarding the use of biocides
for ground-contact treated wood, requiring higher levels of preservatives overall.
manufactures are testing their active biocide
However, results from the rain chamber test method did not correlate with results from a standard ASTM laboratory mold test for the experimental biocide
Much of this shift will be prompted by the sizable regulatory framework under which the biocide
However, with strong oxidizing biocides
it is important to consistently feed the appropriate amount of biocide
