Nano and micro scale characterization of coatings in relation to their functional properties

Nano and micro scale characterization of coatings in relation to their functional properties
Abstract [en]

Coatings, i.e. films that form on surfaces upon application of a formulation, are ubiquitous. In 2010, the global coatings market was worth > US$ 110 billion. The Swedish share is considerable since the country hosts some very strong industries, e.g. Bona AB. The market is huge, but, the competition is global. Staying competitive means inventing new and replacing established formulations by environmentally friendly, healthy and sustainable chemistries. To do this rationally and effectively, it is needed to understand how the composition of the original formulation and the deposition conditions affect the performance of the coating. However, so far it has not been possible to establish such a relationship.
