• Smart Applications Showcase New Growth Prospects for Advanced Coating and Surface Technologies

    Research Overview

    This edition of the Advanced Coating & Surface Technology Opportunity Engine focuses on PLGA nanomaterials, fruit coatings, biorhythm coatings, anti-bacterial coatings, ceramic coatings, and anti-corrosion coatings. The TOE covers use of PLGA nanomaterials for cosmetics, bioimaging and medical devices, drug delivery, tissue engineering, and theranostics. The TOE also includes plant-based fruit coatings that improve shelf life of fruits and vegetables, biorhythm coatings that enhance electrical signal efficiency and reduce polarization, and PEO coatings that enhance lifespan of metal alloys and improve fatigue performance. The TOE also covers antifouling coatings with high hydrophilicity and high bacterial resistance, and a technique for application of ceramic coatings.

    The Advanced Coating & Surface Technology Opportunity Engine 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 super hydrophobic 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.
