Published: 1 Jun 2018

This issue of Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE covers advances in technologies for biofouling prevention, self-healing coatings, zero emission powder coatings, superhydrophobic coatings and edible coatings in the Asia Pacific region. Non-toxic coatings that deter mussel adhesion to marine surfaces, a self-healing coating that resembles the structure of skin and the hardness of tooth enamel, an emission-free and highly sustainable powder coating for use on plastic substrates, a superhydropobic coating made from nanocellulose, and an edible coating made from biobased materials such as chitosan and palm stearin are profiled in the TOE. 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: Biofouling, self-healing coatings, powder coatings, superhydrophobic coatings, edible coatings, nanocellulose, chitosan, palm stearin
