Spider threads are resistant to fracture and ductile
A team of German researcher''s succeeded in manufacture of spider silk threads to break resistance and capable of the ductile through the addition of metal ions of natural yarns.
The German researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Physics minute installation, pointed out that the spider thread silk industrial stronger than any metal wire of the same fish, and this means that the net will the spider net with have a tensile strength of the window of metal wire.
The researchers pointed out that the spider silk treated with metal ions has many features can not be broken under a strong pull; which can be used in industries that require a strong and light materials and flexible such as aircraft, cars or in the technology space.
The researchers pointed out that the spider is very difficult to maintain, and are not particularly productive when it comes to weave weaved, stressing that it is not possible to use these cobweb-supported metal ions on the construction of suspension bridges or elevators in high-rise skyscrapers.
The researchers believe that the new line represents a major breakthrough with regard to practical applications and also in other biological materials can be made more resistant to fracture and ductile.
