#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Researchers from the Ural Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences have developed a frost-resistant glue for the Arctic. The material remains durable even at temperatures down to minus 70 degrees. Scientists believe that it will be very useful for oil and gas workers in the Arctic regions of the country.

When creating the glue, scientists used an original synthesis method that uses a variety of hardeners. The material turned out to be stronger than previous analogs; it can be used as a sealant or self-healing coating.

Previously, Krasnoyarsk scientists created durable concrete from glass waste and a new type of fuel from coal and pine cones. They have also developed suits that protect against both frost and fire for rescuers in the Arctic.
