This report provides a list of frequently used biocide test methods and commonly available biocides, along with details of their strengths and weaknesses. It also examines the influence of legislation on the current and future use of such biocides. The introductory sections explain the need for biocides in plastics and basic microbiology and describe plastic materials requiring biocides. Facts and claims in the report are cross-referenced with the References and Abstracts section. The references and abstracts are the results of a search of the Rapra Polymer Library database, although sources outside the database are also listed at the end of the review. An index accompanies the References and Abstracts section.
