S11: Next Generation Technologies for Innovative Surface Coatings


Demands for new surface coatings with complex performance requirements from a single material system continue to grow strongly in many industries. Longer operation life, lower friction for energy efficiency, corrosion- and wear-resistant are key technical attributes required by sectors such as automobile, heavy duty, and power generation industries. It has been shown that innovative surface coatings with optical, magnetic, electronic, catalytic, mechanical, chemical, and tribological functionalities can be tailored via high-tech nano-composite coatings. The path for mass production economy to deploy such technical solution is of primary interest. This symposium will focus on the technology development addressing industrial demands, highlighting examples of successful industrialization, the use of new applications and the future trends of the nano-composite coatings with multi-functionalities. The forum will bring scientists, engineers, and practitioners together from universities, research institutes, coating industries, and equipment suppliers for the comprehensive discussions on the latest advances in nanocomposite coatings.
