Journal of Coatings Technology and Research (JCTR)


ACA is pleased to announce that a special issue of Journal of Coatings Technology and Research was published in January 2014. The issue, produced in collaboration with the International Society of Coating Science and Technology, includes influential articles from the 2013 “International Coating Science and Technology Symposium,” which was held September 2012 in Atlanta, GA. The issue was guest edited by Prof. Hadj Benkreira of the University of Bradford, UK, who had served as ISCST Vice President (Europe) in 2010-2012.

Listed below are the titles that are featured in the January 2014 issue::
