The ever-growing interest in nanocoating and its enthralling protective properties makes it a very capable candidate for next generation protecting systems. The future of these special nanocoating markets will be expanding in different industries such as marine, building, and defense. The main purpose of coatings involves the use of thin films (nanoscale dimensions) that are applied to the surface of materials, which improve the material functionalities. Some of the improved functionalities include anti-corrosion, easy-to-clean (anti-graffiti), anti-icing, anti-fogging, anti-fouling, etc. Some of the common techniques used for nanocoating are chemical vapor phase deposition, physical vapor phase deposition, Sol-gel methods, electro-spark deposition, electrochemical deposition, and laser beam surface treatment. Commercial application of nanocoating nanotechnology includes self-cleaning coatings, depolluting coatings, ultraviolet (UV) light protective coatings, anticorrosion coatings, thermal resistance, anti-fouling coatings, and anti-graffiti coatings.
