Developments will be described which represent departures from the conventional approaches with which the coatings industry is familiar. Many of these developments are highly specialised, finding application in limited areas. Many represent true innovation such as foam coating or the use of new and specialised polymers as coating vehicles such as poly(phenylene sulphide) or poly(phenylene oxide). Some of the advances are related to technology which is already known. An example is the use of pulsed light to cure coatings, a takeoff on radiation curing which is now well advanced.
