Coatings in danger?

Coating-free substrates might be applicable in more than low-quality and/or low budget areas in the future. No additional production step and of course less material costs seem to be the basis for these developments which would not only reduce the number of coating layers - they are meant to substitute them totally. For sure this would be much cheaper.

Anti-corrosion and Anti-microbial

Corrosion is a big problem as recently discussed. Equally challengin is Biofilm formation on conducting materials (metal, metal alloys, metal oxides, and electrodes) which has emerged as a significant problem in the long-term use of coatings in the marine and industrial apparatus. Biofilm formation usually is followed by slication especially in seawage, marine and goethermal environments, Strategies for controlling bacterial colonization have focused on improving and developing antimicrobial materials and design to inhibit biofilm formation.

Any company that is forward thinking should be able to see the commercial value in applying the basic principles of sustainability. If we become submerged in the detail we lose sight of where we are going. Are we about to become submerged in legislation and measurement for measurements sake, to be sacrificed on the altar of a politician’s definition of sustainability?
