This edition of the Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) showcases a coating intended for biodegradable packaging, a smart skin which mimics the real human skin intended for use in prosthetics, a radiative cooling (PDRC) coating that acts as a coolant for buildings and insulation systems, metal-free additives for anti-fouling coatings, and others.

The Advanced Coating & Surface Technology 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 superhydrophobic coatings, corrosion protection coatings, barrier coatings and paints.

The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research & innovation trends and developments across speciality chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thin films, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibres and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
