Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

2021 marks the 10th anniversary of the founding of Coatings. In the past year, the new Impact Factor of Coatings increased to 2.881 (+18.3% compared with 2019), ranking in Q2 (10th of 21) in the MATERIALS SCIENCE, COATINGS & FILMS category and Q2 (70th of 160) in the PHYSICS, APPLIED category. Additionally, China Association for Science and Technology announced a catalog of high-quality sci-tech journals, in which our journal Coatings was graded as T2 in "High-Level English Journals in the Field of Coatings"! 

The past year was successful, and we will continue this success in 2022. Coatings will create greater glories and gain higher IF. A Special Issue entitled “Coatings in 2022” is being launched. This Special Issue includes high-quality papers under the broad scope of Coatings. We would like to invite you to contribute an original research paper or a comprehensive review article on a trendy or heated topic for peer review and possible publication.

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 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.

In this study, the mechanical resistance and the thermal insulation potential of novel thermal barrier coatings (TBCs) made of a foam of hollow alumina particles are assessed through scratch testing, micro-indentation and thermal diffusivity measurements using laser-flash. The thermal diffusivity of the foam coatings ranges between 0.6 × 10−7 and 5 × 10−7 m2·s−1 and is thus comparable with the thermal insulation potential of the standard plasma-sprayed (PS) and electron beam–physical vapour-deposited (EB-PVD) TBCs made of yttria-stabilised zirconia (YSZ). The coatings annealed in more oxidative atmospheres exhibit greater mechanical resistance due to the thickening of the alumina shells and the increased sintering of the foam. However, when the oxidation is poorly tailored, the adhesion of the foam to the substrate decreases due to the presence of unwanted oxide that grows at the substrate/coating interface. Full article
