Modern ships are distinguished from their "ancestors" by their extreme strength and reliability. But sometimes one big hole is enough for even an advanced ship to sink. Scientists from the University of Rochester have created a unique material that can significantly increase the survivability of water transport.
The basis of the development lay superhydrophobic coating - a special water-repellent composition. Having processed two metal surfaces with this material, scientists connected them together so that the coating was turned outward with two sides.
As a result of processing, the metal disk used to test the technology turned out to be almost unsinkable. Researchers made several large holes in it, which were supposed to simulate holes on a real ship, but even when immersed in water, an experimental sample floated to the surface.
According to scientists, a similar technology can be used in combination with any metal. In the future, a new type of material will improve the survivability of ships and increase the safety of their passengers.
