The new superstrong

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 […]

Stronger than Kevlar, light as a tee-​​shirt, and cheap all over

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 […]
