Cold spray is becoming more and more prominent among thermal spray processes. The possibility to produce thick coatings with low porosity, as well as the absence of any phase transformation during the deposition process, are of great interest to the scientific community. Further, we should not forget the possibility of spraying any type of materials, from steel to Ti and Ni superalloys, and many more. Not only the microstructural and mechanical properties of the coatings, but also deposition efficiency and geometrical accuracy are key factors for the future success of the process. On these premises, it is no doubt true that cold spray will be the process of the future not only for depositing coatings, but also for producing additive manufactured parts. Consequently, this Special Issue aims to investigate and address the future challenges of cold spray in terms of understanding, improving, modeling, and applying the process in different advanced industrial sectors. Original research articles as well as review papers on the state of the art of the cold spray process are welcome.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Metals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
