Several formulations of organotin compounds in polymeric materials were evaluated for application to polyethylene cable coatings. Tributyltin chloride in a chlorinated rubber was the most suitable physically and biologically. Field tests were established in New MExico, Arizona and Massachusetts to test the effectiveness of this formulation in protecting treated WF-16 cable from rodent damage. In a laboratory test vapors of tributyltin chloride showed some repellency to rodents but this was not confirmed in field tests. Author-PL.
