Tomsk scientists have developed a coating which reduces the weight of the aircraft

Russian scientists have developed a unique coating for aircraft.

Scientists from the Tomsk State University managed to create a coating that can reduce the weight of aircraft on 30%, which in turn should ensure a reduction in fuel costs, and it is likely, and increase the maximum load capacity of the aircraft.

The secret of the innovative development is to ensure that instead of aluminum alloys used coating created on the basis of magnesium alloys that provide improved strength.

The promise of the new development is obvious, however, whether it will be sufficiently cheap for widespread use, still remains a big question, which is quite likely need to be addressed in the near future.
