Gravestones Under Glass

Someday we might all be carrying bottles of liquid glass to the graveyard.

Spray-on liquid glass is transparent, non-toxic, and can protect virtually any surface against almost any damage from hazards such as water, UV radiation, dirt, heat, and bacterial infections. The coating is also flexible and breathable, which makes it suitable for use on an enormous array of products.
The war graves association in the UK is investigating using the spray to treat stone monuments and grave stones, since trials have shown the coating protects against weathering and graffiti. Trials in Turkey are testing the product on monuments such as the Ataturk Mausoleum in Ankara. [Link]

Cool! Now, someone needs to invent a time machine so we can go back in time with some of that stuff, to before the old gravestones deteriorated.

I'm sure the Turkish scientists are working on that as well.

Sounds interesting for those old graves that still exist.
