Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (Kisr) announced that it had obtained a patent for developing a new physical method that allows synthesising a thin film stainless steel coating on metals to make them rust-resistant at varying degrees.

The newly patented method involves the “thermal evaporation of a source stainless steel material at a given percentage of electron beam power and a given vacuum pressure to provide a coating layer on the target surface”, Kuwaiti state news agency, Kuna, reported.

Nasser Sayegh – one of the three inventors mentioned in the patent along with Maryam Adnan Saeed and Feras Ghazi Alzubi – reportedly that the newly discovered method created the possibility of providing a stainless steel coating of nano-thickness without compromising its properties at a cost-effective rate.
