IIT Hyderabad develops waterproofing material using fly ash

Researchers at IIT Hyderabad have developed a cheap waterproofing material by coating fly ash, a waste by-product from coal-based thermal power plants, with stearic acid. The surface can be made to behave like one of the two naturally occurring water-repelling materials — rose petals or lotus leaves — by varying the surface roughness. Researchers at … Continue reading IIT Hyderabad develops waterproofing material using fly ash
