Nanomaterial Corrosion Fighter Decreases Usage of Toxic Chemicals with the Help of Infrared Light

Thursday, December 24, 2009 6:26 1 Comment

Steel requires a very close control if the material is used in infrastructure(bridge wires, high building pillars) because of corrosion risks. Anti-corrosion treatment is mainly done with a huge quantity of hazardous chemicals. But recently scientists have found a way to replace these toxic chemicals, with an infrared light treatment that bonds new nanomaterials to [...]
