|Title:||EVALUATION OF THE EFFECT OF DRY-FILM BIOCIDES ON PAINT FILM PRESERVATION USING NEURAL NETWORKS|
|Abstract:||Biocides play an important role in the preservation of a variety of products susceptible to microbiological growth such as paint, a material that can undergo microbial deterioration both in storing (inside the can) and after the application on a surface. In this work, artificial neural networks were used to predict the level of fungal growth on surfaces painted with water-based paints with biocide formulations containing different concentrations of ten kinds of commercial and experimental chemical agents. The use of neural networks is well known in chemical processes and they are a powerful tool for discovering relationships between sets of data. Industrial Environmental Tropical Chamber tests were used as the network training set. The importance of the each additive of the dry-film biocide formulation in prevention of biodeterioration was also examined.|
