Special Issue "Wear Resistance and Friction Coatings"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 November 2023 | Viewed by 7035
Interests: non-traditional machining technology; numerical control technology; agricultural equipment design and manufacturing
Among the latest research achievements in multifunctional coatings is the study of wear resistance, and friction reduction coatings are one of the most valuable coatings research directions in the field of materials science and engineering. Current applications range from cutting tools, machining technology, automotive, and aerospace. In harsh environmental conditions, the theory, experiment, and application of wear and friction reduction are in great demand.
We would like to invite you to submit your new research results to this Special Issue entitled Wear Resistance and Friction Coatings. The properties of the surface are determined by the material used to prepare the coating and the method and technique used to treat it, so coating technology can be considered an advanced surface treatment. The topics of interest for this Special Issue are advanced surface treatment technologies and green coating materials. We hope that our research will evaluate not only the effects of surface coating technology on the physical and mechanical properties of coatings but also the effects of friction mechanisms and environmental friendliness.
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Coating material and preparation technology
- Forming mechanism of coating
- Tribological behavior
- Effect of surface treatment on wear resistance
- Effect of surface treatment on corrosion resistance
- Effect of surface treatment on hardness
- Green paint technology
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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.
