It is my pleasure to invite and welcome you to contribute to the Special Issue “Materials and Coatings for Extreme Environment”. The aim of this issue is to discuss the main challenges of all kind of materials and special coatings with respect to novel materials and areas of applications under extreme environments in order to improve efficiency in areas like transport, space, energy, communication, deep sea technologies, transport, etc. Coatings for extreme environments represent materials that modify the surface but do not change the bulk material properties and, at the same time, face severe combined chemical, wear, thermal, and mechanical loads.
From year to year, there is a significant development in the efficiency of operating systems where the environment is very hot or cold or corrosive and the materials are under high friction, radiation loading, and pressure. Special conditions require a different selection of bulk and coating substances. A limited number of materials are available for combined resistivity, e.g., for controlled thermal and mechanical as well as thermal and corrosive stability. With contributions from researchers of different specialties, this issue will explore the latest advances and challenges in materials and coatings applied under extreme environments and will demonstrate the development in functional coatings, the breakthrough and innovation in technologies as well as in methodologies to characterize novel materials. This Special Issue would like to invite leading academics, researchers, scientists, and engineers to share their research achievements in these fields.
The hot topics to be covered by this Special Issue will serve as a forum for publications in the following categories:
- Scientific fundamentals for composite materials operating under extreme conditions; relationship between structures and properties; materials for extreme physical/chemical environment and irradiation conditions;
- Advanced ceramic coatings used under extreme environments, principle of design; materials for low and ultra-low temperatures;
- Thermal barrier coatings for the aerospace industry, materials for future aerospace programs; fireproof materials;
- Self-lubricating hard/composite coatings for extreme environments;
- Advanced coatings for corrosion protection in extreme environments; materials for extreme corrosive, acid, and alkali conditions;
- Chameleon coatings to reduce friction and wear in extreme environments.
The papers could cover original research work and can review one of the aforementioned topics.

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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
