Published: 9 Mar 2018

This issue of Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE focusses on controlled-release coatings, anti-fouling coating, and anti-corrosive coatings. Innovations profiled include a sponge-like coating with the ability to release and absorb liquid repeatedly upon exposure to light in a location- and time-controlled manner, a permeable epoxy-based coating with a reactive solvent to provide anti-corrosion properties to concrete, and an electro-spraying coating technique for modifying surface morphology of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) films for using them as humidity sensors with superior performance. 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: Anti-fouling coatings, silica-polyaniline hybrid material, anti-corrosive coatings
