Nano-Technology meets Construction
A new nano-technology process that layers carbon steel elements with corrosion resistance and strength increasing materials is being tested.
The steel is run through an electroplating bath and various layers of metals are applied to the steel, which is reported to increase the steel strength by up to ten times. High strength and corrosion resistance are a great combination for a material that could be used to repair a steel building.
