The scope of this Special Issue “Anticorrosion Protection of Nonmetallic and Metallic Coatings” is the research on anticorrosion coatings of nonmetallic and metallic origin. The present Special Issue focuses on the improved anticorrosion properties of metallic, nonmetallic, and composite coatings using different engineering approaches to increase their durability in various demanding applications. It is highly recommended to present your research using novel approaches of defining anticorrosion properties through electrochemical, spectroscopic techniques and other techniques in your research on nonmetallic and metallic coatings. Submitted papers are expected to follow different aspects of processes, including physical and chemical vapor deposition, atomic layer deposition, thermal and plasma spraying, directed energy techniques, wet chemical and electrochemical processes, and techniques based on nanotechnology. The papers should provide comprehensive insight on corrosion resistance, mechanical properties, and surface and interface characterisation, with emphasis on enhanced functional performance for different applications.

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 papers will be 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. Coatings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
