Coatings and Inhibitors
This RIP symposium will serve as a forum for discussion of:
Sustainable corrosion protection can be provided by either multi-functional coatings and/or inhibitors. A tailored design of such coatings requires working out elaborate processing (manufacturing), multiscale, internal structures, and chemical compositions. The development of inhibitors can be as a chemical added to the coating multifunctionality or to the existed electrolyte or environment.
This session includes presentations on the processing, materials characterization, and performance of coatings produced by a wide variety of functionalities (barrier, sacrificial, inhibition, self-healing, hybrid, etc.) that encompass different manufacturing routes (including traditional and additive manufacturing). In addition, we welcome inhibitors’ performance as an added chemical to the coating or by itself.
Topics of focus include new innovations in process technology, characterization, non-destructive evaluation, modeling, and emerging applications. Some examples are: (i) Corrosion, wear, and galling resistant performance of coatings and surface treatment produced by different processes, including but not limited to additive manufacturing processes. (ii) Understanding of degradation mechanisms of coatings through the mechanical load, wear, and corrosion; the relationship between coating composition, corrosion control mechanisms, microstructural and nanostructure features, and test environments, and their effects on performance and life. (ii) The latest development of test methods considering the interplay between mechanical, chemical, and electrochemical interactions and the ability to predict performance. Emphasis on valid, accelerated performance tests and the relation between test technique and field performance data is specifically appreciated. (iv) Theoretical modeling to predict coating properties, performance, durability, and reliability in service environments. (v) Understanding inhibitors efficiency and protection mechanisms.
