What operational parameters have the bigger impact on antifouling paints?
Hi @Captain_Tim !
According to antifouling paint experts, the following operational parameters have the greatest impact on the polishing rate of antifoulings and have to be considered when ordering antifouling paints:
- Sea water temperature
- Voyage factor (vessel’s activity)
It would be prudent to analyze the vessel’s historical operational parameters in collaboration with the antifouling paint suppliers in order to determine a probable operational profile and customize the specification of the antifouling paints.
