Special Issue "Wood Coatings"
A special issue of Coatings (ISSN 2079-6412).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2017).
The growth of multi-story wooden building constructions in recent years, as well as the positive consumer and industry attitudes toward sustainable materials, has opened many more opportunities for wood products. These developments have led to a larger market for wood coatings. Throughout the last few decades, wood coating formulators have dealt with a few major changes in the industry, such as the transition from solvent-based to water-based or UV-Cure formulations, the development of coatings for Cu-based preservative treated wood upon the phase out of CCA, and the formulation of coatings for heat-modified or acetylated wood in exterior applications. Many researchers have also devoted their time to studying the applications of nanoparticles and renewable materials in wood coating formulations and their performance on wood.
This Special Issue of “Wood Coatings” is intended to invite researchers within the field from across the world to publish their latest work in an online coating journal. Since there is no journal exclusively dedicated to wood coatings, this issue will serve as a starting point for gathering all the researchers in wood coatings. As such, the Special Issue may also be seen as a comprehensive compendium for students interested in pursuing research in wood coatings, and as a resource for industries looking for experts in the field.
