Summary

The degeneration of materials has become increasingly prominent in petroleum, biomedicine industries, etc. One efficient approach is to apply coating and film to protect the native material. However, most of the derivatives are toxic, and it can cause dizziness, insomnia, or even liver damage to human. In view of the shortcomings, scientists and researchers have tried to exploit green and environmental-friendly materials as the film to protect the native materials. In the current state-of-art, green and environmental-friendly film are growing tremendously because of their advantageous to reduce the potentially negative impact to nature and human being. So, the editor intended for the original research and review articles in the field of green coating and film for corrosion protection in this special issue.

    Study on Air-Purifying Performance of Semi-Flexible Asphalt Samples Coated with Titanium Dioxide Using Different Methods

    Shoujing Yan, Yangyang Wang, Fengxia Chi, Xue Luo, Tianjie Zhang, Chenchen Xi
    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.10, No.5, pp. 1321-1335, 2022, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2022.017545

    Abstract Titanium dioxide (TiO2) was recently employed to apply onto road surfaces to degrade the harmful compounds from vehicle emissions. However, it remains a challenging task to find a highly compatible pavement type for TiO2 application to achieve durable and efficient air-purifying performance. This study proposed to coat TiO2 particles onto semi-flexible pavement surface and tried to investigate an optimum coating method. Three coating methods, including direct mixing TiO2 (MT) with asphalt mixture, spraying dry TiO2 (ST) coating and water-solution-based TiO2 (WT) coating on semi-flexible pavement surface. To achieve this objective, semi-flexible samples were prepared to evaluate and compare More >

    Abstract A novel and effective water-soluble aldehydes (β-HA) as corrosion inhibitor was synthesized for N80 steel corrosion in 15% HCl solution, and the corrosion inhibition performance was evaluated by using weight loss, electrochemical measurements, scanning electron microscope (SEM), quantum chemical calculation and molecular dynamics simulation (MDS). The results show that synthesized β-HA showed excellent corrosion performance compared with MHB and PE for carbon steel in 15% HCl solution compared with MHB and PE, and the inhibition efficiency increased with increasing concentration of the inhibitor. The inhibition efficiency of β-HA at 8 mmol/L reached the maximum value 94.08%. The More >

    The Effects of Different Post-Heat Treatments on Rolling Contact Fatigue Behaviors of Direct Laser Cladding Inconel 625 Coatings

    Qiaoxin Zhang, Rui Chen, Ding Jin, Chen Zhou, Xuewu Li
    Journal of Renewable Materials, Vol.9, No.1, pp. 129-144, 2021, DOI:10.32604/jrm.2021.011596
    (This article belongs to the Special Issue: Green Coating and Film for Degeneration Protection)
    Abstract In this paper, the microstructures and rolling contact fatigue behaviors of laser cladding Inconel 625 coatings with or without post-heat treatments were analyzed. The results revealed that the fatigue resistance of the laser cladding coating after any post-heat treatment was worse than that of the as-deposited coating. First, through the finite element analysis, the distribution of stress along the thickness direction of the coating was obtained, and it was concluded that the bonding interface between the coating and the matrix had little effect on the fatigue properties of the coating. Then X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning… More >

    Abstract The aim of this study is to explore the heterogeneous ice nucleation behavior based on controllable micro-cubic array structure surfaces from the statistic perspective. To this end, we firstly constructed a group of micro-cubic array structures on silicon substrates by a selective plasma etching technique. After grafting low-free-energy substance, the as-constructed micro-cubic array structure surfaces exhibited higher non-wettability with the water contact angle being up to 150°. On this basis, 500 cycles of freezing and melting processes were accurately recorded to analyze the instantaneous ice nucleation behavior according to the statistical results of freezing temperature.… More >
