This issue of Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE focusses on nanocomposite coatings, ceramic coatings, polymeric coatings, anti-bacterial coatings, and anti-biofouling coatings. An epoxy-based nanocomposite coating for carbon steel, a multi-functional methacrylate containing anti-biofouling coating, metallic bond coatings for battery packs for protection against heat sources, a polymeric resin coating for high-temperature applications, and anti-bacterial coatings with high adherence to metal substrates have been profiled in the 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.
