Abstract:

This report describes a study to determine the effect of seawater solutions of calcium hypochlorite, lithium hypochlorite and sodium dichloroisocyanurate on non-skid and alkyd-painted surfaces at room temperature. The effect of oxidizer concentration, solution pH, and submersion time were evaluated. Weight gain measurements and visual inspection were used to determine the coatings compatibility with the detoxifiers. Keywords Corrosion Compatibility.
