Innovations in Spray on Coatings, Drag Resistant Coatings, Slippery Coatings, and Anti-microbial Coatings, 2019 Study -

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Innovations in Spray on Coatings, Drag Resistant Coatings, Slippery Coatings, and Anti-microbial Coatings" report has been added to's offering.

This issue of Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) highlights a functional coating for the flexible packaging industry, which would enable better machine-readable black-on-white codes. Another technology talks about liquid-impregnated surfaces for enabling mobility of the yield stress fluids on the container surface without shearing. An Anti-Reflective coating, which makes transparent plastics invisible to reduce the glare on electronic devices, is also developed. Finally, the nano-coating of boron nitride (BN), which doubles the life of batteries has also been highlighted in this issue.

The Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications and strategic insights on various coatings across industries. This encompasses protective and functional coatings such as antimicrobial coatings, food coatings, energy-saving coatings, smart glazing, hydrophilic, hydrophobic and superhydrophobic coatings, corrosion protection coatings, barrier coatings, and paints.

The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research & innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thin films, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
