Revision Date: July 08, 2013
Updated On: July 10, 2013
Editorial Change:
 
4.1 This test method is intended to measure the erosion rates of ablative antifouling paint systems exposed to flowing water at velocities designed to subject the paint system to shear stresses experienced in service.

4.2 Measurement of erosion rates are necessary to help in the assessment of ablative antifouling paint film thicknesses required for fouling control between scheduled drydockings of ships, in the selection of materials, in producing quality assurance, and in understanding the performance mechanism.

4.3 The test data is intended to serve as a guide for predicting the service life of ablative antifouling paints in order to calculate the necessary paint thickness to fit specified deployment cycles. Erosion rates of antifouling paints in service will vary depending on such factors as: berthing location, geographic area of operation, salinity, pH, and temperature of seawater. It should also be recognized that some areas of the ship are subject to different erosion rates.

4.4 The degree of correlation between results obtained from this test method and shipboard service has not been determined.
