This issue of Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE presents recent innovations in hydrophobic, anti-corrosive, and self-healing coatings for different industries. Self-healing technology is one of the key research directions for smart coatings. The current issue includes two self-healing coating idea/products, which can be used for metal and paint protection. Another important market trend is that coating materials have started to shift toward the use of eco-friendly ingredients in the formulation due to increasing environmental awareness. The TOE profiles coating technology that uses biobased coating materials in metal and agricultural industry, which could provide more insights in terms of sustainable coating technology.
The Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications and strategic insights on various coatings across industries.
