Special Issue "Advanced Coating for High Temperature Applications"
A special issue of Coatings (ISSN 2079-6412).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2020.
Interests: high temperature corrosion; surface modification; oxide analysis; protective coatings; diffusion coating; vapor deposition coatings; aluminizing; coatings for energy and power systems
Generally, the material compatibility with the corrosive environment is one of the key factors determining the lifetime and the reliability of key components of various high temperature facilities for manufacturing, transportation, energy, and power industries. Various coatings and surface modification techniques can provide physical and chemical barriers to such aggressive environments, thus, protecting materials during service life. There are many options for coating, such as metallic or non-metallic coatings, whether the protective layer is formed before or during the service, heat resistant or corrosion resistant, and so on. Additionally, some coatings demand functional properties which can be achieved by multi-layer or gradient coatings for better temperature stability.
In this Special Issue, recent advances in advanced coatings and surface treatment for high temperature application in manufacturing, transportation, energy, and power industries are elaborated.
In particular, topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
- Advanced coating and surface treatment methods: metallic or non-metallic;
- Performance of coatings in various high temperature environments;
- Coatings for advanced thermal and solar power systems;
- Coatings for nuclear fission and fusion reactors;
- Long-term stability of coatings.

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.
