Special Issue "Testing of Anticorrosion Coatings for Specific Industrial Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2022.
Interests: organic coatings in corrosion protection; multilayer coating systems; multifunctional coatings; degradation of organic coatings; application of impedance spectroscopy in the field of coating testing; anticorrosion pigments for coatings; use of chemometric methods in coating studies
The ultimate goal of research in the field of coating protection for metals is to translate the achievements of research into real industrial and infrastructure needs. This will always be the true measure of the value of our research. We need methods and tools to analyze the effectiveness of solutions in specific, often very aggressive industrial conditions.
People from the industry expect new and relatively simple solutions that will help them to ensure the continuous operation of devices and systems. With the numerous products of different companies available on the market, how can we check their suitability for specific conditions? We currently have a resource of modern research methods. In recent decades, for example, impedance spectroscopy has become widely available, with its use beginning to extend beyond the laboratory to real conditions. We also have tools to analyze large amounts of data, though it is still unclear how we can use these methods in analysis. The purpose of this Special Issue of Coatings is to serve as a platform for ‘brainstorming’ on these topics. I encourage you to share your achievements.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- New concepts and ideas for testing established or new coating products, in the laboratory but also in real industrial or infrastructural conditions;
- Testing of high-performance coatings exposed to high temperatures, pressures, stresses, vibrations, and other extreme environmental conditions;
- Understanding the mechanisms of degradation of coatings in industrial conditions, in the presence of friction, wear, vibration or other dynamic loads, and a chemical environment;
- New test methods that take into account the interaction of mechanical, chemical, and electrochemical factors;
- Accelerated performance testing of coatings and the relationship between the test data and field performance data to predict performance and reliability;
- The use of new techniques for processing large amounts of data (big data analytics) to characterize the resistance of coatings in industrial conditions.

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 papers will be 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 1800 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.
