On the basis of a literature review, the sources of microbiological contamination of aqueous dispersions of polymers, water-soluble paints and paint coatings have been presented. The methods of prevention of the microbiological damage have been discussed, with a particular attention devoted to the role and importance of the application of microbiocides. In tabulated form, the main microbiocides used for microbiological protection of aqueous dispersions of polymers and water-soluble paints have been characterized. Among others, their chemical nature, trade name, field of action and application, toxicity and environmental impact have been given.
