The operation of numerous safety-critical components in industries around the world rely on protective coatings. These coatings often allow process equipment to be purposeful in environments well beyond the operational limit of the uncoated components. Durability, ease of application, repairability, reliability and long-term performance of such coatings are key to their application. Therefore, this Special Issue of Coatings, “Coatings for Harsh Environments” is devoted to research and review articles on the metallic, non-metallic and composite coatings used in aggressive environments.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Coatings for High Temperature and Molten Salt Applications
- Coatings for Mitigating Corrosion in CO2 and H2S Environments
- Thermal Spray and Cold Spray Coatings for Aggressive Environments
- Corrosion, Wear and Cavitation Resistant Coatings
- Coatings for Mitigating Marine Corrosion
- Coatings for Deep Sea Applications
- Coatings for Nuclear Applications
- Coating for Chemical and Petrochemical Plants
- Coatings for Aeroengine Turbines
- Coatings for Applications in Space
- Coatings for Oil Sands and other Oil and Gas Exploration and Production Environments
