The world is in the strongest stage of infrastructure and living space development, demanding architects, builders to catch up and meet the real trends and living needs of the community.
This is the premise for the birth and development of smart cities, which helps the residential community to develop sustainably.
Therefore, coatings for buildings play a very important role in the process of building and developing smart cities.
The superior advances in technology of coating products help to partly solve some challenges, which cities are facing and bring sustainable values to the smart cities in the future.
