Funded under: FP6-NMP
Country: Germany

Advanced nanostructured surfaces for the control of biofouling (AMBIO)

Different binders and fillers have been evaluated for antifouling coatings. Biological testing has been performed by the project partners Uni Birmingham, Dundee and Newcastle as well as TNO.
Coatings have been characterized regarding their stability under sea-water, surface energies, wetting behaviour through captive bubble techniques, elasticity via nano-indentation and morphology via scanning force and scanning electron microscopy. Scanning force microscopy reveals subtle changes in nanostructure after sea-water storage.
