How to Get Sprayed Metal Coatings to Stick

When spraying metal coatings, melting hurts rather than helps, MIT research reveals. When bonding two pieces of metal, either the metals must melt a bit where they meet or some molten metal must be introduced between the pieces. A solid bond then forms when the metal solidifies again. But researchers at MIT have found that

A Self-Healing, Water-Repellent Coating That”s Ultra Durable

A self-healing, water-repellent, spray-on coating developed at the University of Michigan is hundreds of times more durable than its counterparts. It could enable waterproofing of vehicles, clothing, rooftops and countless other surfaces for which current waterproofing treatments are too fragile. It could also lower the resistance of ship hulls, a step that would reduce the
