In today’s market for high performance fibers, used for applications such as bulletproof vests, manufacturers have only four options: Kevlar, Spectra, Dyneema, and Zylon. Made from polymers such as polyethylene, these were the strongest synthetic fibers in the world—until recently. Marilyn Minus, an assistant professor of engineering at Northeastern, has developed a type of fiber […]
Forty years ago, Dupont Company revolutionized protective gear when they introduced Kevlar, a fiber made of super-strong, rigid polymer molecules belonging to a small class called aramids. Since then, improvements to strong textile fibers have been incremental. That’s because most flexible polymers are inherently flimsy. When you look at their micro-structures it’s easy to see […]
