Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to submit your recent work to this Special Issue on “Thermal Sprayed CoatingsTechnology, Working Conditions, Durability”.

Thermally sprayed protective coatings are widely used in order to protect substrate alloy, which is exposed to extremely difficult operating conditions related with high temperatures, aggressive environments, and mechanical load. High-efficiency solutions in the substrate-coating system are based on the proper recognition of operating conditions and environmental requirements, as well as selection of coating materials and a technological approach to the preparation of surface and protective coatings deposition. A proper selection of technology and type of coating as well as their appropriate preparation is the first step in guaranteeing the high durability of the system. Another aspect of this problem is the real operating conditions concerning industrial applications, which often differ from design assumptions. A correct recognition of working conditions together with appropriately selected material and technology can allow us to obtain a durable system and high efficiency coatings with, at last, low-cost production.

In particular, topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Description of issues connected with designing and modeling of coatings deposition processes by thermal spraying;
  • Characterization of feedstock powders: Designing, manufacturing, structural characterization, etc.;
  • Technological aspects characterization of thermal spraying;
  • Microstructural characterization of coatings as well as their properties and degradation processes;
  • Selection of regeneration processes and reproduction of usable properties of operated surfaces;
  • Methodology of research expertise and results interpretation;
  • Innovations in the area of thermally sprayed coatings.

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.
