There are also various raw materials that are used in making of new automobiles. One such thing that is not directly visible in a vehicle is Mercury. It is used as a small additive in the automobiles control system, lightning features and airbag sensors as well. Normally, this chemical works for various good purposes when used within a vehicle.
