Because of their unique structural characteristics and outstanding properties, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) have lots of potential applications in many scientific and technological fields, such as hydrogen storage [1], supercapacitors [2, 3], lithium ion batteries [4, 5], catalyst supports [6], electronic devices [7], etc. CNTs also have been taken as a superior candidate for use as fillers in composite materials because of their extremely high Young’s modulus, stiffness, flexibility, conductivity, and other special properties. Much research has been carried out using CNTs as fillers in thermoplastics, epoxy resins, phenolic resins, and rubbers which demonstrated greatly enhanced mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties [8, 9, 10, 11]. Although the applications of CNTs in polymers have been widely studied, little attention has been paid to coatings, especially for fluorocarbon coatings. As one of the fluorocarbon resins, a unique solvent called soluble fluoro-olefin/vinyl ether...
