Hi, Nor.

Aluminizing, anodizing, black oxiding, chemical grafting, ceramic coating, chemical vapor deposition, chromating, electroless plating, electroplating, flame spraying, galvanizing, hot dip dinning, immersion plating, ionic plating, patinating, phosphatizing, physical vapor deposition, salt bath nitriding, sherardising . . . I'm sure I'm missed a few, but these ought to keep you busy for the rest of your academic career :-)

Let us know as specific questions arise. Good luck.

INORGANIC coating is generic term of metallic coating.
The inorganic coating forms its film and its adhesion to the surface by methods quite different from those of the organics. The coating system is a chemically reactive system, and the chemical activity is similar for either the water- or the solvent-base inorganic.
Depending on the formulation, other metal ions may be present in the system that also react and aid in the insolubilization of the coating.

few Examples: electroless, electroplating, PVD,CVD, phosphating, conversion coating., etc and many more

Important note: should not confuse with organic coatings (nonmetallic).
