Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The objective of this Special Issue “Recent Advances in Coatings, Adhesives and Construction Materials” is to present the latest scientific and technical achievements in the field of paints, coatings, adhesives, and construction materials approved for presentation at the European Technical Coatings Congress ETCC2022 ( https://etcc2022.org/). Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Advances in all kinds of paints and coatings, adhesives, construction materials, printing inks, and related products;
  • Chemical composition, formulations, and product specifications;
  • Polymers and other raw materials;
  • Advances in processing and production;
  • Measuring and testing, quality systems
  • Fire protection and corrosion prevention materials;
  • Equipment and production lines;
  • Application techniques;
  • Environment, safety, and health;
  • Product and process legislation.

Knowledge in this field is of key importance to facilitate the development of energy-saving and material-saving tools and techniques.

Depending on the specific application, certain requirements must be met in terms of physicochemical properties and waste management.

The purpose of this Special Issue is to bring together current perspectives from materials scientists, physicists, chemists, and chemical engineers as well as others who are active in the field to discuss the topics mentioned above. We are pleased to invite authors to submit original research papers, reviews, short messages and concept papers.

Notice:

  • The manuscripts submitted before the deadline will be published immediately after the completion of the pre-review process and collected together in a special issue. If 10 or more papers are collected it is possible to print this Special Issue as a book.
  • Benefits including 20% submission discount for all attendees of ETCC2022.
  • Submission Guidance: click "Submit to Special Issue" in the upper left corner, first-time users are required to register before submitting). About submission and discount details, please contact Ms. Hellen Hu ([email protected]).

Powder coatings are widely applied for corrosion protection of steel, aluminum, and hot dip galvanized steel in a variety of corrosive environments. Powder coatings are subjected to a number of strict laboratory tests to determine their mechanical properties, corrosion resistance, and color stability. Among European quality certificates for powder coatings applied to galvanized steel, the most commonly recognized are GSB-ST and Qualisteelcoat certificates, which also refer to the EN 13438 standard. Certificates of quality for powder coatings are constantly updated according to the latest research results and experience of specialists operating in the field of corrosion protection. This paper presents an experimental evaluation of how the required length of selected accelerated corrosion tests can affect the final assessment of powder coatings. On the example of two powder painting systems: polyester as well as based on epoxy and polyester resins, the paper presents the influence of the time of accelerated corrosion tests: ISO 6270, ISO 9227 (Neutral Salt Spray and Acetic Acid Salt Spray), and ISO 3231 on the protective properties of the coatings. The results of damage assessment according to ISO 4628 have been correlated with the requirements of particular quality specifications. Additionally, based on FTIR (Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy) and EIS (Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy) analyses, the influence of the applied corrosion tests on the degradation degree of the coatings studied has been presented. The paper aims to present a tests for those powder coating systems applied to facilities for which the main requirement is corrosion resistance rather than aesthetics. Full article

Air quality is one of the most important problems of the modern world, as it determines human health and changes occurring in other elements of nature, including climate change. For this reason, actions are taken to reduce the amount of harmful substances in the air. One such action is the use of building materials with special properties achieved by the application of self-cleaning coatings and photocatalytic additives. This article presents achievements in the field of additives and modifiers for building materials, whose task is to improve air quality. Concrete, cement, paints, and facade coatings modified based on the achievements of nanotechnology have been analyzed in terms of new properties and the possibility of their application in the area of modern environmental requirements. Both positive aspects and doubts were described in the scope of the effective reduction of the amount of gases such as VOC, NOx, dust and microorganisms. Full article
