Solvents – a key ingredient of durable and sustainable materials
When you see solar panels or bridges you probably don’t think that solvents play a big role in making and protecting them. Yet they do. Solvents are essential to glue solar panels together. Coatings with solvents protect infrastructure like bridges and dams from corrosion and rust, extending their lifetime by decades.
