Skin with high rust protection factor

June 03, 2014

In industrialized countries, corrosion guzzles up to 4 percent of economic performance annually. Consequently, scientists working with Martin Stratmann and Michael Rohwerderat the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung (Iron Research) in Düsseldorf are developing synthetic coatings that can protect steels and other metals from rust and heal themselves if they become damaged.
