This issue of Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE showcases some vastly emerging coating developments within Europe. The issue finds that majority of these developments happen in the building and the automobile industries. Some of the major developments have been highlighted in this issue, which also showcase the apparently high stakeholder activity to produce a wide range of innovative coatings in Europe. A high temperature coating for industrial applications describes the value addition the coating provides in protecting substrates at very high temperatures of even 600 degrees C. Another innovation features a portfolio of coatings designed for the automotive industry that emphasizes the significance of visual appeal stands in this industry.
The Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications and strategic insights on various coatings across industries. This encompasses protective and functional coatings such as antimicrobial coatings, food coatings, energy-saving coatings, smart glazing, hydrophilic, hydrophobic and super hydrophobic coatings, corrosion protection coatings, barrier coatings and paints.
The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research & innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thin films, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers, and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
