    TREX

     

    Have you ever wondered what types of chemistry made the building of the above dinosaur possible?  No?  Well you are in luck, because I have!

     

    From paint pigments to the polymers that make plastics possible, the above dinosaur is not only a feat of engineering but also chemistry in action.  From a chemistry perspective, chemists developed the paints and all the ingredients inside them (pigments, ultra violet absorbers, drying agents, dispersing agents, etc.) to the polymers that make the plastic to the process in which the steel for the frame and concrete is manufactured and cured...  Without the wonderful world of chemistry, the ferocious dinosaur statue above would not have been possible!
