This issue of the Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE features some of the key anti-corrosion coatings used across a wide range of industries. A heat activated ceramic composite coating with the capability to protect a surface from CUI (corrosion under insulation) has been featured. Another anti-corrosion coating, which can save engine components from friction and save energy, has been highlighted in this issue. Some additional developments in the field of super-hydrophobic coatings for water repellant fabrics have been highlighted, and finally a quick drying paint, which can convert any substrate into a projectable and writable one has been included in this issue.
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.
