FS3: Next Generation Technologies for Innovative Surface Coatings


Preliminary Program – Focused Session 3

Recently, we see solid demands from industries for new surface coatings with more than one special property from a single material system. Those properties are sometimes complementary or sometimes almost opposite. Longer operation life, lower friction for energy efficiency, lesser corrosion and wear, and etc. are the key technological demands from automobile, heavy duty, and power generation industries. For these technological demands the surface coating technologies are advantageous especially in terms of economy, because they would gain the optimum properties with only a small consumption of materials. It has been frequently proved that the noble surface coatings with optical, magnetic, electronic, catalytic, mechanical, chemical, and tribological functionalities can be realized by the high-tech nanocomposite coatings. In this respect, there has been a worldwide competition to develop various kinds of composite coatings which could possibly facilitate the multi-functionality. We also understood that a technological merge or fusion of both dry vacuum and wet chemical methods would give even more improved coatings.

This symposium will focus on the technology developments answering the industrial demands, the examples of successful industrialization, the new applications with newly developed technologies, and the future trends of the nanocomposite coatings with muti-functionalities.
