Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Ceramic and cermet coatings are always applied with the aim of improving the final product. Such surface treatment of an element results in the improvement of its mechanical, physicochemical, tribological, anticorrosion, and other functional properties, regardless of the core material properties. Thanks to the technical capabilities of advanced research methods, changes in the structure of materials can be observed and characterized not only in the microscale but also in the nanoscale. The expected result can be achieved, for example, by physical and chemical vapor deposition of coatings, atomic layer deposition, laser alloying, feeding and cladding, and heat and detonation spraying. Another commonly used technique is powder metallurgy, which ensures different compositions of powders in surface layers. The wide range of possibilities offered by the use of multilayer, multiphase, and gradient coatings can be considered separately. Products with ceramic and cermet coatings are used in various industry branches, such as in the tool, machine, automotive, aviation, space, electronics, and precision industries, as well as in medical and dental engineering.

We encourage you to present modern methods of applying ceramic and cermet coatings along with the areas of their current and future implementations in processing and manufacturing. This should be accompanied by a broad characterization of the structure and properties of these coatings. Please pay attention to the ecological and economic aspects of this subject matter. Issues related to the foresight of future development trends in this thematic area, supply chain management, and organization of production processes can also be considered. However, the scope of the mentioned problems is not closed and remains open to other aspects that are currently being dealt with by researchers in this field.

We are convinced that the effect of our cooperation will be very interesting and will inspire scientists and entrepreneurs to further develop and improve ceramic and cermet coatings.

We are looking forward to receiving your submissions!

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. 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 2600 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.
