|Publication Date:||15 March 1994|
|ICS Code (General standards related to shipbuilding and marine structures):||47.020.01|
1.1 This practice covers a procedure to test a biofouling resistant coating systems or antifouling systems, or both, when subjected to in-situ partial immersion exposure. This enhances settlement of certain marine fouling organisms and increase the rate of possible physical deterioration.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
