Resumen:

A hydrogel is a superabsorbent gel made of natural or synthetic polymers. They can absorb up to 99.5 per cent water in volume. Because they can be made from natural polymers, the substance has potential as a structural biomaterial. Unfortunately, no material was reliable or strong enough for long term use, until now. Researchers at Hokkaido University (JP) created fibre-reinforced soft composites, or a tough hydrogel combined with woven fibre fabric. The new material is highly flexible, tougher than metals, and have a wide range of potential applications.https://materia.nl/article/fibre-reinforced-hydrogel/?utm_source=Materia&utm_campaign=9d3f9e6ca9-Edible+Water+Bubbles&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_8794d00bd4-9d3f9e6ca9-302961337
