We would like to invite you to submit your work to this Special Issue on "Functional Coatings for Textile Applications". Currently, due to the increasing growth competition textile materials cannot be restricted to clothes, linen, tablecloth, and curtains, but they have to also be regarded as high-tech products that, in addition to the traditional clothing industry, find application in many technological fields, like construction, agriculture, automotive, aerospace, and medicine. In this regard, recently, both the surface activation and deposition of thin functional coatings have been investigated in order to confer different properties to textiles. The scope of this Special Issue on textile coatings is not to focus on traditional textile coatings that usually encompass passive protections or decorations, but in the new advanced textile active coatings that envisage extending the functionality of conventional textiles.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Memory polymer coatings for smart textiles;
- Self-cleaning processes on textile surfaces;
- Self-healing textile coatings;
- Smart breathable coatings for textiles;
- Conductive polymer coatings;
- Photonic materials for textile coatings;
- Smart medical textiles and antimicrobial textile coatings;
- Coatings for protection and comfort in clothing and sportswear;
- Biomimetic textile coatings;
- Advance processes and technologies for smart textile coating by microencapsulation, low-pressure, and atmospheric plasma treatments, nanotechnology-based and sol–gel coating technologies.

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 2000 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.
