To power our cars, motorcycles, trains, and airplanes, engines convert heat into mechanical energy. This heat can put stress on the engine and the overall vehicle, which is why silver is used throughout engines to keep vehicles and their operations safer. Silver’s strength, ability to withstand high temperatures, and properties as a lubricant make it an essential component of today’s engines.
