Weekly Poll (11)


At the University of Wisconsin–Madison, engineers recently developed a new ultrathin coating, reported to camouflage heat when viewed through infrared technology. Do you think the research findings will one day be beneficial to applications in heat transfer, camouflage or even clothing as to protect personal privacy?


In August, researchers based out of the National Institute for Interdisciplinary Science and Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, India, announced the development of a new way to protect ships from corrosion using a compound from mango leaves. Though further testing still needs to be conducted, do you think the technology will be used in future industrial coating products?


Researchers from Columbia University have recently developed a new coating material inspired by the Saharan Silver Ant to keep buildings cool. According to physics professor Nanfang Yu and his team, the developing coating can reflect up to 99% of sunlight. Slated to require more research and testing, when do you predict the technology will be released into the market?


Researchers from the Corrosion and Coatings Engineering Branch at Naval Surface Welfare Center, Carderock Division are currently evaluating coatings that could possibly mitigate corrosion on Navy vessels. How soon do you think we could see these developing products on the market?


A recent feature argues that, with regard to air and water barriers, the importance of fastener penetrations, such as at cladding attachments, is often overlooked and underestimated. Do you agree?


Researchers worldwide have been working in recent years to develop nontoxic and biobased antifouling agents to eventually replace traditional antifoulants in marine coatings. Is a sea change coming soon in the antifouling world?


How often do you work with specialty-function coatings (such as fire-resistive coatings, antifouling paint or heat-resistant coatings) in your day-to-day work?


Researchers are currently developing a glass-based coating for ships and rooftops. Do you believe this will be beneficial for protecting them from heat and sun?


What coatings segment will benefit most from changes in government policy over the coming years?


What technology do you prefer for permanent (non-sacrificial) anti-graffiti coatings?


What anti-graffiti paint technology are you currently specifying to coat sound barriers, privacy walls, or other architectural surfaces?
