Protective and decorative materials are the most researched area in building and construction materials. These materials are going to play a key role in developing smart buildings of the future that will be energy efficient and can ensure safety against natural and artificial disasters.
Protective coating prevents structures from a plethora of harm like penetration of moisture, UV rays, acid rain, and industrial vapors. These materials include paint, vapor barriers, polishes, etc. Another benefit these materials offer is of reinforced concrete or brick surface, and energy saving.
Another reason for the increase in research in this area is the decrease in landmass available for construction. This is encouraging the construction of skyscrapers. Skyscrapers demand high safety and energy efficiency.
