Special Issue in Applied Sciences: Spray Applications
Coatings often allow process equipment to be purposeful in environments well beyond the operational limit of uncoated components. In addition to protection, some coatings also provide additional functions, such as sensors. Durability, ease of application, repairability, reliability, and long-term performance of such coatings are vital to their application. The overall cost-effectiveness of these functional coatings is key to their industrial uptake. Therefore, this Special Issue of Applied Sciences, “Functional Coatings” is devoted to research and review articles on the metallic, non-metallic, and composite coatings used in various environments.
In particular, the topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Coatings for temperature-sensing applications;
- Photoactive coatings;
- Self-healing coatings;
- Corrosion-, wear-, and cavitation-resistant coatings;
- Coatings for aeroengine turbines, such as thermal barrier coatings;
- Coatings for thermal management;
- High-entropy alloy coatings.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
