Most protective resistant materials fail when exposed to the energy of an explosive blast. However, new technologies by Auxetix in woven textiles actually become thicker when stretched out, resist forces and then have the memory to return to its earlier state.
I imagine taking the blast protection one step farther; by incorporating a flame-retardant yarn & adding protection from high-heat. But what really draws me to this type of technology is its innovative versatility. Just a few applications which would benefit from this technology are hurricane protection, concrete reinforcement construction it could reduce or elimate the de-bonding effect & auxetic dental floss the most extreme hi tech dental floss in the universe.
