Functional coatings are an essential component of modern technologies ranging from the building and construction industry, textiles to medical devices and implants. Functional coatings typically modify the surface properties of a substrate, such as providing anti-fouling coatings for hip implants to prevent rejection or to provide water-repelling effects on rain jackets or building panels.
