A must-own resource for understanding functional coatings and their revolutionary potential
Functional coatings are those which provide not only the protection and performance enhancement of a conventional coating, but also offer additional properties tailored to meet the specific requirements of a given industry or application. They have applications in a huge range of sectors, including automotive, aerospace, healthcare, energy, and more. Coatings with properties like fire retardancy, antimicrobial properties, or controlled drug release have the potential to revolutionize entire industries.
Functional Coatings offers a comprehensive resource for engineers and researchers looking to understand these coatings and the opportunities they provide. Beginning with an overview of the subject's foundations and industrial significance, the book analyzes numerous coating methods and their properties, with a particular focus on anticorrosion coatings. The result is an indispensable resource for professionals in virtually any technological industry looking to understand the benefits of a cutting-edge toolkit.
Functional Coatings readers will also find:
* Coverage of synthesis, durability, reproducibility, cost-effectiveness, specialized surface morphology, and environmental friendliness of each coating
* Detailed discussion of antimicrobial coatings, fire-retardant coatings, self-healing coatings, nanopowder coatings, coatings for marine applications, and many more
* Applications of additives, machine learning, and sophisticated characterizations, etc. as per industry requirements
Functional Coatings is ideal for researchers, engineers, and industry professionals working with any area of technology where coatings have purchase.
