The corrosion resistance of metals is a key issue in many industrial fields. Corrosion leads to high economic losses, so adequate protection is vital in many applications.
Coatings are the most important technology when countering corrosion of metal surfaces. In order to reduce the corrosion rate of metals, they must have a high wear resistance and good adherence to the surface. In recent years, the field of coatings used to improve the corrosion resistance of metal surface has become significant.
This Special Issue aims to collect the latest research and experimental papers on effective new coatings that inhibit corrosion. Moreover, it aims to contain papers with advanced concepts about the development and characterization (structural, tribological and chemical) of several types of coatings such as organic coatings, bio-based coatings, metallic coatings, sol–gel coatings, pretreatments, etc. The objectives of this Special Issue include the obtainment and characterization of new advanced coatings used to improve the corrosion resistance of metals in different corrosive media.
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Cold-spray coatings;
- Electroless deposition;
- Plasma spraying;
- Physical vapor deposition;
- Thermal spray coatings;
- Corrosion behaviour in simulated or real environments;
- Conversion coatings;
- Cathodic protection;
- Activated bonding properties;
- Chemical vapor deposition.

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.
