Composite coatings are protective layers applied to substrates such as steel, concrete, or metals. They provide excellent corrosion protection and waterproofing. Composite coatings offer protection against fire, heat, corrosion, and harmful radiations. Different layers of composite coatings include adhesive treated substrate, primer, base coat, and top coat. The construction industry is one of the common end-user industries of composite coatings. These coatings are typically used to protect steel from corrosion in the building & construction industry. Composite coatings are used as intumescent and thermal barriers on concrete and other materials. Commonly used composite coatings are light in weight; as a result, they help improve fuel efficiency. Besides construction, other industries that employ composite materials are manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, and oil & gas. Composite materials are coated on various substrates with the help of technologies such as laser melt injection, electroless plating, brazing and others. Composite coatings have attractive properties such as uniform coating thickness, accuracy, and consistency.
