Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The scope of this Special Issue “Anticorrosion Protection of Nonmetallic and Metallic Coatings II” includes research on anticorrosion coatings of nonmetallic and metallic origin. The present additional Special Issue is a result of a succesfull first issue. The new issue has a similar focus 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 the use of electrochemical, spectroscopic techniques and other techniques in your research on nonmetallic and metallic coatings. Novel protection systems are highly encouraged. 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/interface characterization, with emphasis on enhanced functional performance of presented anticorrosion protection for different applications.

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).

By using the methods of XRD, SEM/EDS, electrochemical polarization, and a weight loss test, the effects of the rare earth salt CeCl3 on the adherence, hardness, porosity and corrosion resistance of an electroplated Pd-Ni film on 316L stainless steel were studied. The results showed that by adding 1.0 g L−1 CeCl3 in the plating bath, the obtained Pd-Ni film was obviously improved. The grain size was refined, and the microstructure was more compact and uniform. The film hardness and the adherence to the substrate increased, and the corrosion resistance in a 20 wt % H2SO4 solution (80 °C) obviously increased. Ce3+ increased the throwing power of the bath, which resulted in more uniform current distribution and strengthened the cathodic polarization degree during the electroplating process. Full article
