We would like to invite you to submit your work to this Special Issue on “Surface Treatment of Metals”. The scope of this Special Issue includes surface treatment solutions applied for metallic materials which are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and safe for operators and the environment. The aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest experimental and theoretical achievements in the field, through a combination of original research papers and review articles from leading research groups around the world. Scientific and technological progress has been achieved on this topic by universities and research institutes worldwide. Further, surface coating is very well known by scientists and can improve the properties of any kind of metallic materials.
In particular, the topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Mechanical coating/alloying/treatment of the metals;
- Heat/Thermo/chemical treatment of the metals;
- Nonconventional treatment applied to metals, such as: thermo/mechanical coating, including removing of the heavy metals from industrial waste, electrochemical machining, abrasive flow machining, shot blasting, shot peening, turbo-abrasive machining, centrifugal barreling finish, centrifugal isotropic finishing, etc.;
- Biomaterials coatings applied but not limited to Ti-based alloys, CoCr alloys, stainless steels.
