An antifreeze treatment whose effect lasts five years was developed by Russian researchers. The advance allows metals, plastics and glass to maintain their properties for five years and “their anticorrosive effect for a period of up to 15 years,” indicated the Platform of the National Technology Initiative (NTI).
The advance guarantees a high degree of “hydrophobicity, mechanical resistance and durability of the coating, against corrosion and the formation of ice. It has already demonstrated its antifreeze effect in an electric train at 34 degrees Celsius below zero”.
In this sense, one of the developers, Mark Vestberg, said that the new product “can be used in cell phone towers, bridges, facilities in the community services sector, works in the oil and gas industry, as well as in transportation,” Sputnik reported. .
