And yet you would have thought not. Metal, iron and steel are three of the most formidable materials you can find anywhere on earth. Granite could be added to this equation too. It requires a considerable amount of force to break down these materials. Different gradients of plastic, now considered to be non-sustainable materials, are quite malleable that it is quite possible for human fingers to squeeze it and crush it between finger and thumb.
In spite of its unsustainability, plastic is still very much in wide use. It does not look as though dependency on this material will be ending any day soon. In the meantime, a variety of coating materials are used to protect vulnerable plastic surfaces from being destroyed. Metal, iron and steel is also widely used, thank goodness for that. But it still needs to be protected. For metal, protective metal coatings will be used to protect its surfaces.
Fortunately, these coating materials are widely available as well. It may require a considerable amount of force to destroy metal, but there are other forces that, no matter what metal is capable of achieving, will easily destroy metal surfaces if not attended to in the correct housekeeping manner specified. Metal will always rust away and corrode when dust, debris, sea salt spray, oils and aircraft fuels are allowed to touch its surface.
But the protective force of nylon, interestingly enough, stops all destruction in its tracks. A special coating formula has been prepared. It is quite easy for users to apply to their metal surfaces, provided the clear instructions of labels on containers have been followed through step by step. A necessary housekeeping exercise is to clean all surfaces thoroughly before applying the solution.
