YAKUTSK, May 15. /TASS/. Scientists of the North-Eastern Federal University have patented a method of manufacturing of cold-resistant rubber seal which can reduce environmental risks in mining industry, the university’s press service reported.
"The new two-layer material combines rubber with ultra-high-molecular polyethylene to get very solid cold resistant seal capable of enduring high pressure," the press service said, adding that the material can be used to produce mining equipment.
Its use can prevent hydrocarbon leaks, thus reducing environmental risks, the press service said.
The material is currently being prepared for the use in mining industry.
