Smart coating to achieve autonomous corrosion control

A multifunctional, smart coating for the autonomous control of corrosion has been developed in order to detect the chemical changes associated with the onset of corrosion and respond autonomously to indicate it and control it.

Researchers discover the symmetry of chemical bonding

Nanomolecules can now be defined. Physicists realise the quantitative measurement of the symmetry of chemical bonding. It is the basis to determine the  bonding energy and therefore as well the chemical identity of an atom.

Filled microcapsules provide self-healing in coatings

Protective coatings prevent structures from harmful environmental effects like UV-light degradation and corrosion. Additional stress in coated elements (e.g. induced by production processes) can result in cracks in the coating which in turn leads to a weakening of the structure. Furthermore, corrosive media reach the substrate surfaces and cause damage.

More than protection

I’m still very fascinated about the topic of functional coatings. Today it is normal, that coatings are anti-ice, anti-scratch, self-healing, water-repellent, - in other words they are multifunctional. But what does "multifunctional” actually mean?
