Field tests - immersion test

Specific specimen geometries

Deploying artificial substrates in the field is a fundamental step for the final appraisal of materials for maritime application. From a biological point of view, the common assembling of plates and panels in the static immersion assay presents a severe constraint. For this reason we additionally offer the construction of custom-designed specific specimen geometries.

We thereby take into account expected characteristics of the future field of application (e.g. boat hull, pipeline, foundation structure, hollow spaces in machines, nets for mariculture).


  • The specific specimen geometries improve the validity and significance of information in fouling control in the field with respect to its future application in the maritime environment.
  • Customers select specimen geometries that can be combined with other examination methods such as the flow channel.
