This issue of Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE profiles self-healing coatings, hydrophobic coatings, wood coatings, coating stabilizers, and anti-corrosion coatings. The innovations in focus are a coating with carbon nanotubes that has superior corrosion resistance, a coating that has hydrophobic as well as self-healing properties, and an anti-corrosion coating that consists of a clear liquid nylon-epoxy copolymer. coating stabilizers that do not discolor the substrate, and wood varnish that protects wood from sun and water damage have also been presented in this TOE.
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.
