Some of the Modern Technological Materials
With the modern advancement in technology, it has become possible for people to create unique and amazing products. What determines how the buyers view a product is the materials the products are made of. Dreams can only be turned into reality by futuristic materials. The following are some of the unique futuristic materials with their pros and cons.
The first material is bioplastics which describe products that are manufactured using plant materials. The plant-based materials that we are referring to here are the starch and the vegetable oils. The good thing about these materials is that they are environmental-friendly. 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. The non-reusability of these products should encourage people to dispose them off properly.
E-skin is a flexible plastic film that can be coated on any material. On this film, you will find a transistor and an organic LED. It can be applied on any item that the user would want to look like a touchscreen. Another application of E-skin is any bandages that are used to determine how fast the heart is beating.
The pores that fill the metal foam are filled with gas. It is strong and also very light because most of it is space. This material can be applied in artificial joints and prosthetic bones.
Another amazing futuristic material is nanocellulose. This product contains a lot of strength. This light chemical also conducts electricity. Graphite and nanocellulose can be used together to make batteries and flexible telephones. 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.
Grapheme is a solid and thin material. The main applications of this material include the manufacture of superior batteries and other types of machines, particularly computers.
Willow glass is a thin material that is also very elastic. 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. The strength in this product make them more appropriate to be used as a material for building space elevators.
Metallic glass is also referred to as amorphous metal and is known to be very strong. It is also environment-friendly.
Transparent alumina is a material that is made through a chemical manufacturing process.
