Steel is an alloy of ferrous metal with a maximum carbon content of 2%. This material is widely used for jetty building structures at rivers, estuary, and coastal areas. Corrosion of steel can occur due to several factors, such as the steel material itself and the surrounding environmental factors. One of the corrosion is biocorrosion that occurs due to the presence of biofouling. This study aims to determine the effect of adding extraction of mangrove (Avicennia marina) as an antifouling compound mixed in epoxy paint through adhesion strength parameter. Then the alloy was applied as a coating on the ASTM A36 steel specimen. The variation of coating composition were 100% of epoxy paint, 90%:10% (epoxy paint and extraction of Avicennia marina), 80% : 20% and 70% : 30%. The results showed that the adhesion strength occurred in 100% of epoxy paint (10.15 ± 0.64 Mpa). The adhesion strength was 8.86 ± 0.21 Mpa, 8.50 ± 0.03 Mpa, and 8.19 ± 0.07 Mpa at ratio of composition coating 90%: 10%, 80%: 20%, and 70%: 30%, respectively. In conclusion, the more mangrove extraction was added, the smaller the adhesion strength.
