Harsh environments are encountered in several industries around the world. These environments vary greatly from the extremes of temperature and pressure to that of corrosive fluids. To remain operational, the industrial components need to retain their useful properties in such harsh environments.
Protective coatings often allow process equipment to be purposeful in environments well beyond the operational limit of comparable uncoated components. Durability, ease of application, repairability, reliability and long-term performance are vital characteristics of such coatings. The overall cost effectiveness of these coatings is key to their industrial uptake. Therefore, this Special Issue of Coatings entitled “Coatings Challenges in Harsh Environments” is devoted to research and review articles on the metallic, non-metallic and composite coatings used in aggressive environments.
In particular, the topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Coatings for high temperature and molten salt applications;
- Coatings for mitigating corrosion in CO2 and H2S environments;
- Thermal spray and cold spray coatings for aggressive environments;
- Corrosion, wear and cavitation resistant coatings;
- Coatings for mitigating marine corrosion;
- Coatings for nuclear applications;
- Coatings for chemical and petrochemical plants;
- Coatings for aeroengine turbines, such as thermal barrier coatings;
- Coatings for applications in space;
- Coatings for oil sands and other oil and gas exploration environments;
- Coatings for applications in geothermal environments.

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.
