This issue of Advanced Coatings and Surface Technology TOE showcases a highly durable ceramic coating applied by a unique patent pending process that prevents marine bio-fouling. Another anti-oxidant incorporated coating intended for similar applications has been highlighted. A water-based LEED compliant intumescent coating that can fireproof steel structures has been featured. Finally, an acrylic resin is highlighted, the incorporation of which can turn polymeric coatings highly resistant to weather and chemicals.
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.
