Incredible New Polymer Fibers Are Ultra Light and Super Strong

by University of Bayreuth, SciTechDaily

Researchers at the University of Bayreuth develop unique multifibrillar fibers.

Strong and tough yet as light as a feather – materials with this exceptional combination of properties are urgently needed in many industrial sectors and in medicine, as well as being of great interest for scientific research. A research team from the University of Bayreuth has now developed polymer fibers with precisely these properties. Together with partners in Germany, China, and Switzerland, the polymer fibers were characterized. The scientists have published their results in the journal Science.
