When light passes into a lens, the highly polished glass surface of the lens reflects light at each air-lens interface (lens surface). The erratic reflected light mixes with usable light, detracting from the image. (This is called diffusion.) Lens coatings seek to eliminate this phenomenon, but each coating typically affects only a limited frequency range (color) of light. Older single coatings like Magnesium Fluoride (MgF2) can do a lot in one coating but multiple coatings are better. Multi-coatings have a seperate layer for each part of the visible spectrum. Since the coating reduces reflection it affects the amount of light transmission. For a quality multi-coated riflescope, total light transmission should be over 95%. No multi-coating is 100% efficient. Since each extra lens introduces more light-reflecting surfaces, simpler fixed-power scopes are often brighter and sharper than variables with more lenses.

An emulsion, varnish or lacquer applied over a printed surface to protect it. See also Aqueous coating and Varnish.
A special water based coating which is applied to printed matter to protect literature from ink smudging or finger marking or to enhance appearance. The main types are sealer, gloss, matt and silk. Coatings are commonly used on matt or silk coated paper as these types are more prone to smudging than gloss coated paper. The main difference between a varnish and a coating is that coatings are faster drying and therefore jobs can be turned around quicker. They tend to be more scuff resistant than varnishes and there is also less risk of yellowing paper. However, oil based varnishes are better if specific areas of a document need to be coated.

Coating refers to the two flexible layers that are attached to either side of the fabric used to make inflatable boats.
