Sturdy Silica Coatings Take Tough Stance Against Corrosion

Engineers have long relied on polymer paints to slow metal corrosion, but these soft materials degrade in a matter of years and their upkeep is costly. Now, researchers have turned to inorganic chemistry to create long-lasting coatings that fight oxidation on multiple fronts. Jason J. Benkoski of John Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory unveiled the composition… Read more »
