A few extra coats of “paint” could be all that the steel in a
building needs to prevent itself from buckling and failing in a fire.
Scientists came up with this idea when they were figuring out a
commercially viable solution to protect reinforced concrete against
underground fires. After two years of intensive research and development
by the interdisciplinary team, an affordable 3-in-1 coating that offers
enhanced fire and corrosion protection was invented.
