Antifoul Tests after 15 months

  1. 1. Techplast Antifoul Coating A short power point presentation showing a “Techplast Antifoul Coating” test panel series conducted at Fremantle Boat Harbour, Perth, Western Australia. The test panel was suspended from a jetty and periodically inspected. Sections of the front of the panel were lightly wiped at weekly/monthly and 3 monthly intervals (to simulate different frequencies of vessel movement). The rear of the panel was not touched and was used to demonstrate uncoated fouling rates/types. The test panel series continues and this presentation will be periodically updated.
  2. 2. Techplast Antifoul Coating Fremantle Harbour static test panel - start
  3. 3. Techplast Antifoul Coating Fremantle Harbour static test panel – after 2 weeks Top half of test panel wiped lightly every 1-2 weeks – to simulate regular vessel movement
  4. 4. Techplast Antifoul Coating Fremantle Harbour static test panel – after 3 weeks Top half of test panel wiped lightly every 1-2 weeks – to simulate regular vessel movement Rear face of the test panel showing the progressive build up of marine fouling
  5. 5. Techplast Antifoul Coating Fremantle Harbour static test panel – after 4 weeks Top half of test panel wiped lightly every 1-2 weeks – to simulate regular vessel movement Rear face of the test panel showing the progressive build up of marine fouling
  6. 6. Techplast Antifoul Coating Fremantle Harbour static test panel – after 5 weeks Lower right hand side of test panel wiped lightly every month – to simulate less regular vessel movement Top half of test panel wiped lightly every 1-2 weeks – to simulate regular vessel movement Rear face of the test panel showing the progressive build up of marine fouling
  7. 7. Techplast Antifoul Coating Fremantle Harbour static test panel – after 6 weeks Top half of test panel wiped lightly every 1-2 weeks – to simulate regular vessel movement Rear face of the test panel showing the progressive build up of marine fouling Lower right hand side of test panel wiped lightly every month (2 weeks ago) – to simulate less regular vessel movement
  8. 8. Techplast Antifoul Coating Fremantle Harbour static test panel – after 7 weeks Top half of test panel wiped lightly every 1-2 weeks – to simulate regular vessel movement Rear face of the test panel showing the progressive build up of marine fouling Lower right hand side of test panel wiped lightly every month (3 weeks ago) – to simulate less regular vessel movement
  9. 9. Techplast Antifoul Coating Fremantle Harbour static test panel – after 8 weeks Top half of test panel wiped lightly every 1-2 weeks – to simulate regular vessel movement Rear face of the test panel showing the progressive build up of marine fouling Lower right hand side of test panel wiped lightly every month – to simulate less regular vessel movement
  10. 10. Techplast Antifoul Coating Fremantle Harbour static test panel – after 3 months Lower left hand side of test panel wiped lightly after 3 months – to simulate irregular vessel movement Top half of test panel wiped lightly every 1-2 weeks – to simulate regular vessel movement Rear face of the test panel showing the progressive build up of marine fouling Lower right hand side of test panel wiped lightly every month – to simulate less regular vessel movement
  11. 11. Techplast Antifoul Coating Fremantle Harbour static test panel – after 5 months Top half of test panel wiped lightly after 2 months – to simulate regular vessel movement Rear face of the test panel showing the progressive build up of marine fouling
  12. 12. Techplast Antifoul Coating Fremantle Harbour static test panel – after 7 months Top half of test panel wiped lightly after 2 months – to simulate regular vessel movement FRP OEM Techplast Antifoul Coating “ Gel Coat” application. Top half of panel wiped clean after 7 months
  13. 13. Techplast Antifoul Coating Fremantle Harbour static test panel – after 8 months Lower left hand side of test panel wiped lightly after 5 months Top half of test panel wiped lightly after 1 month – to simulate regular vessel movement Rear face of the test panel showing the progressive build up of marine fouling Lower right hand side of test panel wiped lightly after a month
  14. 14. Techplast Antifoul Coating Fremantle Harbour static test panel – after 15 months Bottom half of test panel panel lightly wiped after 15 months exposure. This is the first clean to the centre lower section of the panel during this 15 months. Rear face of the test panel showing the progressive build up of marine fouling FRP OEM Techplast Antifoul Coating “ Gel Coat” application. Top half of panel wiped clean after 15 months exposure and 7 months from last clean.
