Abstract:

This chapter discusses the properties of coatings made of polymer nanocomposites based on non-conductive polymers, electroactive polymers and conductive polymers. Anticorrosion resistance and tribology can be efficiently improved when nanoclay or nanoparticles are embedded in the polymer. Polymer nanocomposites made with carbon nanotubes have electrical properties and act as electromagnetic interference shielding. Some coating technologies suitable for polymer nanocomposites are discussed.
