Oysters could lead to new protective aircraft coatings

A new protective coating for aircraft might have its source from an unlikely place: your local seafood restaurant.

Scientists at the University of Dayton Research Institute are studying how oysters could lead to new corrosion-proof and environment-friendly aircraft coatings.

According to AOPA Online, the research focuses on how oyster blood cells deposit nacre, a natural ceramic material used by oysters to form shells and pearls, and apply it to metal surfaces.
