Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Coatings remain one of the most effective ways to protect surfaces from external influences. Coatings of various compositions are effectively used to protect surfaces from corrosion, wear, and cavitation. Application technologies are constantly being improved. However, the development of new types of technology and equipment (high-speed transport, electric vehicle, thermonuclear fusion units, equipment for the high-viscosity oil lift, etc.) poses new challenges for technologists, experimenters, and theorists. The development of new types of coatings entails the development of new technologies, test methods, equipment for quality control of coatings, and materials for application. We invite you to participate in the formation of this Special Issue entitled Deposition and Applications of Protective Films and Coatings to discuss topics related to the application and development of new types of coatings.

This Special Issue of the journal will bring together articles on relevant topics, including:

-Technologies for applying highly hard wear-resistant coatings based on hard alloys, ceramics, and other materials (HVOF, DS, Plasma) to protect against abrasive wear.

-Research and deposition of thin coatings for metalworking tools.

-Research and development of anti-friction, self-lubricating coatings (MoS2, MoSe2 et al.) for extreme conditions.

-Development and research of metal–polymer coatings based on PEEK, PTFE, etc.

-Coatings for the oil and gas industry to protect equipment from wear and corrosion.

-Technology of atomic-layer spraying. Research on coating properties and development of spraying technologies.

-Research in the field of contact interaction calculations, taking into account the properties of boundary layers.

-Research on DLC coatings for various applications.

-Development of coatings to protect equipment from corrosion–erosion wear.

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 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.
