Progress on Measurement of Adhesion Strength of Marine Microfouling Organisms
The development of novel nontoxic antifouling paint has led to the need for better test methods to evaluate their performance. The adhesion strength of microorganism on material surface is the key parameter to characterize whether they could permanently soiled, therefore it is significant to establish a biological adhesion test method to evaluate the material antifouling ability. In this paper, several types of surface adhesion strength test devices have been introduced, including spinet apparatus, laminar channel flow cell, radial flow chamber, annular flow cell and fully-developed turbulent channel. Their application, advantage and disadvantage have also been discussed.
