Metal, steel, iron, call it what you will, is generally non-enforceable. All around, it is applied to important structures. High rise buildings would be a good example. The strong steel is hidden within the concrete walls. Perhaps because it is shielded by the concrete, it would not be susceptible to any form of damage. But interestingly, and perhaps this is ironic, non-enforceable steel or metal that is exposed to natural or man-made elements will be susceptible to short to long-term damage.
Why would this be ironic? And what is the damage being spoken about? The irony is that the layman would have thought that steel being strong as it is, could pretty much take care of itself. The chances are extremely minimal that brute, extreme force would be brought to bear. The hazards to which metal, steel and iron are exposed is related to the cause of rust and corrosion. Further irony and interesting food for thought.
Nylon is generally regarded as a fairly flexible, malleable and lightweight material. In comparison to metal and steel, minimum force is required to disrupt its structure. And yet it is held in high regard by many industrialists and building contractors and maintenance inspectors as one of the best coating materials with which to protect metal, iron and steel. You could just say that the nylon coating for metal, iron or steel is laid on quite thick.
That may well be the layman’s impression, but it is hardly necessary. Just two finely coated applications are applied to ensure that metal surfaces, to which the coating is applied, are guarded against rust and corrosion for longer than usual periods of time. All this is quite necessary, allowing for an affected product to remain functional and enjoy a longer lifespan.
