Carbon nanotube fibers woven for military armor

By / December 1, 2010

The newest development in military armor comes from Israeli-based TorTech, which says it will soon be manufacturing carbon nanotube fiber yarns that it claims to be stronger than Kevlar, yet still flexible and lightweight. The company says the light, stretchable and extremely strong protective material can be woven into wearable materials. It also plans to develop…
