I'm surprised that this is so low on the two wikiprojects priority list- paints, printing, reflective, UV, anti-stick, self-adhesive, post-it notes, melamine kitchen surfaces- coatings are everywhere! I hope its OK to dive in and have a bash at the whole lot. the structure is a bit confusing on this article which may reflect the merge of several articles some time back. One issue to get out of the way: on the basis that all printing processes can be used as coating processes, but not all coating processes can be used as coating processes, I'd like to treat printing as a subset of coating (which from prior experience, may upset a few printers).
