Current performance testing of antifouling products is mainly based on static raft exposure tests (according to ASTM D3623/ D6990) or polishing tests in seawater (ASTM D4938). Such methods give only indirect measurement of friction drag properties of hull coatings

Major function of antifouling coatings is to keep added friction drag due to biofouling accumulation on a ship hull at
