Improving the performance of soft asphalt for coating applications

A study by Egyptian researchers aims to prepare coating materials based on asphalt cement which is a good adhesive and inert to most chemicals but it has unacceptable time to form a solid film.

Chitosan-zinc oxide nanocomposite coatings prevent marine biofouling

Global concerns about the high toxicity of antifouling paints have highlighted the need to develop less toxic antifouling coatings. In a study, researchers tested the antifouling activity of chitosan-ZnO nanocomposite hybrid coatings.

Electrochemical impedance study models anticorrosive performance of coatings

In a study, the atmospheric corrosive protection characteristics of four organic coatings were modeled based on the evolution of low-frequency impedance over time when subjected to accelerated tests and outdoor exposures.
