Major Amazing Futuristic Materials
The creation of unique and amazing products has been made possible by the improvement in technology. It is good to know that the material is the most important part of any product. Dreams can only be turned into reality by futuristic materials. The following are some of the futuristic materials and how they have affected our lives either positively or negatively.
Bioplastics is a term used to refer to substances derived from various plant-based materials. The plant-based materials that we are referring to here are the starch and the vegetable oils. Bioplastics are biodegradable and thus do not affect the environment negatively. Bioplastics are not comparable to the non-biodegradable polymer products. Those looking forward to producing this material should expect to spend a lot of money in the process. The cost has caused many people not to know about this futuristic material. These materials should not be disposed of in bins.
E-skin is a flexible plastic film that can be coated on any material. Organic LED and transistors are the main components of this product. Its most appropriate application is touchscreen. Measuring of blood pressure and heart rate is made easier by applying E-skin on he bandages.
This potential material is made of metal and surrounded by pores that are filled with gas. It is strong and also very light because most of it is space. One of its appropriate application is in plastic joints and bones.
Nanocelluloseis also on the list of the modern materials that make our lives amazing. It also appears on the list of the strongest materials on the planet. On top of that, it is a good conductor of electricity. These qualities make it a good candidate for the manufacturing of batteries when used together with graphite. Another amazing thing about this product is that it can be recycled.
Liquidmetal cannot be easily scratched. It can be modeled into various desired shapes. Another benefit of this material is that it is strong and that is why it is preferred by the companies that manufacture smartphones.
People looking for thin, strong and stiff materials should choose grapheme. Because of its excellent properties, graphene is used to make batteries and computers that perform tasks very fast.
Willow glass is also a unique material. An amazing thing about this material is that it is as thin as a copy paper and very flexible thus used to make phone screens.
This chemical bond used to hold the carbon chains together is what makes this unique material stronger than diamond and steel. Most of the space elevators need to be strong and are therefore made of carbon nanotubes.
Metallic glass is also referred to as amorphous metal and is known to be very strong. The power grids made from this metal is efficient because the material is designed with electronic properties.
It is transparent and strong at the same time.
