Resistance of Polymer Materials to Microfungi during Their Adhesive Interaction
The adhesion of Aspergillus niger microfungus spores to polymer materials has been studied; a kinetic equation to describe this process has been derived. It has been shown that parameters of this equation can be used to estimate the resistance of materials to contamination with microfungi as the initial stage of their interaction which subsequently leads to the degradation of the material. A technique of the experimental determination of the adhesion equation parameters has been substantiated.
