We would like to invite you to submit your original contribution to this Special Issue "Advanced Materials Processing Technology and Surface Engineering". Material processing is relevant to everyday life, including in food, clothing, transportation, and to the production process of electronic products. Materials can involve metal, non-metal materials, organic, and inorganic materials. This Special Issue also covers advances in the materials and processes used to manufacture components and their surface treatments. Surface treatment technology could reduce the degradation of the components and extend their lifetime and improve their performance. The aim of this Special Issue is to present the latest experimental and theoretical developments in the field, through a combination of original research papers and review articles from leading groups around the world.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Casting, welding, forming, and additive processing and joined technologies;
- Surface engineering specifically related to the manufacturing process, such as plasma surface treatment, thermal spraying, cold spraying techniques, and physical and chemical deposition techniques;
- Characterization and testing before and after surface modification, such as improvement of friction, corrosion, thermodynamics, biocompatibility, etc.

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 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. Coatings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
