Smart Polymeric Coatings to Enhance the Antibacterial, Anti-fogging and Self-Healing Nature of a Coated Surface


Smart Polymeric Coatings to Enhance the Antibacterial, Anti-fogging and Self-Healing Nature of a Coated Surface

Santanu Sarkar, Chiranjib Bhattacharjee, Supriya Sarkar

All surface modifications are mainly done to improve different properties e.g. antibacterial, anti-fogging, self-healing etc. of a surface. By definition ‘smart coating’ is a type of coating which has such special properties. The current chapter deals with three special characteristics of such smart coatings. Antibacterial coatings make the surface immune to living microorganisms and thus the growth of bacteria on such coated surface becomes restricted. In the case of self-healing coatings, the surface is protected from a corrosive environment and moreover, if the coating is damaged due to some reason self-repair mechanism prevents the exposed surface from any type of attack. Finally, anti-fogging coatings enhance the hydrophilic nature of the coated surface as well as reduce any light penetration problem through the surface by preventing water droplet formation on the coated surface in moist weather. All types of coatings have a large amount of applications in different fields of science as well as in our daily lives. This chapter has also highlighted several aspects and applications of different types of smart coatings.
