05002 Antifouling Coatings for Offshore Structures

This paper will consider the performance and relevance to static situations of the key types of Cathodic dip painting (CDP) Antifoulings (Rosin Modified types), the current tin free polishing types (typically acrylates of various types), and low energy surface types. Both field experience and laboratory work will be considered.

Antifoulings have conventionally been used on mobile marine vessels to reduce build up of hull roughness due to the settlement of various types of biofouling, the consequence of which can be significant increase in fuel bills and reduction in speed.

This is obviously not the case on static offshore structures such as FPSOs and fixed platforms however in many areas of severe marine fouling their use is worth giving full evaluation.

In this case speed and fuel use is obviously not relevant, but correct antifoulings can significantly reduce effect of wave action, for example, on risers, and make inspection of weld nodes and underwater hulls much easier for divers.

This paper will consider the performance and relevance to static situations of the key types of CDP Antifoulings (Rosin Modified types), the current tin free polishing types (typically acrylates of various types), and low energy surface types. Both field experience and laboratory work will be considered.

 Key Words: Antifouling, Surface roughness, Silicone elastomer, Easy clean surface.
