Antifouling paints are used to protect ship and boat hulls from fouling settlement and to improve craft speed by reducing water friction. All this, in shipping economics, translates into several advantages obtained through faster craft speed and fuel saving. In this paper, laboratory tests are described that have been developed and tested in pilot plants with a view to speeding up testing time of new products, compared with conventional field test methods.
