Kevlar

The discovery could open up wide-ranging possibilities for designing new, easy-to-manufacture composites for optical devices, electronic systems, and high-tech materials. Adapting an old trick used for centuries by both metal-smiths and pastry makers, a team of researchers at MIT has ...

A class of biological materials found within numerous natural systems, most notably trees, cellulose nanocrystals have captured researchers’ attention for their extreme strength, toughness, lightweight, and elasticity. The materials are so strong and tough, in fact, that many people think ...

The new long range electric car uses an extremely lightweight composite chassis developed in Denmark and the whole car weighs in at around 700kgs. Named the Alex eroadster, the electric car will be made from carbon fibre and Kevlar and ...

The US Army has unveiled a new defensive product dubbed “ballistic wallpaper” designed to protect American Soldiers when they take cover in urban war zones. In urban warfare, troops will often use abandoned buildings or structures for defensive purposes instead ...

A team of researchers have created new type of nano fibre that can stretch to up to seven times its original length, while remaining tougher than Kevlar.

With new government funding the 300ft long craft is getting closer to takeoff
