Nano-velcro Promises To Bind Stronger Than The Toughest Glues - New Product

Researchers in the US are working on a Nano-velcro that could have a holding power tens of times greater than epoxy adhesives.

The researchers at Michigan State University are working on the reusable material made from carbon nanotubes. Unlike conventional velcro that uses loops and hooks, nano-velcro only has hooks.

It is believed that the material could become a strong, self-repairing, heat resistant micro-fastening system to hold together components in ultra-small robots and electrical devices.
