This issue of Advanced Coatings and Surface Technology TOE profiles innovations in high performance polyurethane dispersions that can be used to formulate water-borne coatings for metal and wood floorings, water-based functional coatings for enhancing the surface of substrates, lubricant-infused surface coating that is capable of selectively absorbing a single target substance, atmospheric chemical vapor deposition (CVD) processes that bonds organo-ceramic coatings to metal surfaces of any shape, and bulk-matte waterborne polyurethane coating composites.
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.
