Special Issue "Advanced Coating Material for Heritage Preservation"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2023 | Viewed by 9808
Interests: protection of cultural relics; ancient material detection; microbial control in cultural heritage
Nowadays, influenced by natural and human factors, a large number of immovable cultural heritage sites are being destroyed. One of the keys to the success of the protection of immovable cultural relics is the development of coating materials and technologies. However, immovable cultural relics are composed of a variety of materials, and thus face different preservation environments and issues. Much evidence has proved that proper coating materials and techniques can protect immovable cultural relics; on the other hand, the use of the wrong materials would cause more serious damage. This requires researchers to design different coating materials and develop appropriate coating technology according to the actual situation. Towards this goal, we are assembling a Special Issue of Coatings to encourage researchers and to provide them with a platform with which they can publish their novel studies.
The theme of this Special Issue broadly includes (but is not limited to):
- Materials for use in the reinforcement of stone cultural relics;
- Fire-retardant coatings for wood cultural relics;
- Coating technology in heritage conservation;
- Multi-layer coating for cultural relics;
- Interactions between coatings and cultural relics;
- Degradation processes of coating materials in cultural relics;
- Novel coating and its characterizations for cultural relics.
- Sacrificial coating on the surface of cultural relics
- Study on weather resistance of cultural relics coating

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.
