Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Polymer coatings have become a popular candidate material for surface modification due to their advantages of good chemical stability, simple processing, and low cost. Modification of the polymer provides it with the functions of anti-fouling, corrosion resistance, and self-healing, making it suitable for numerous fields. In this Special Issue, emphasis will be placed on, but not limited to, the following topics:

  • Polymer coating development;
  • Polymer coating modification;
  • Polymer coating characterization;
  • Polymer coating properties;
  • Polymer coating simulation;
  • Application of polymer coatings.
