This issue of Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE focusses on automotive finish base coatings with low volatile organic compound content, bio-based melamine-formaldehyde coatings developed using valinnin from lignin, cathodic electrocoat primers based on acrylic resins, self-modifying coatings based on vanadium (IV) oxide, and a self-healing coating with both hard and soft property attributes. 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. Keywords: Melamine-formaldehyde coating, self-healing coating, automotive basecoat, smart glass
