WiredPRNews.com — ‘Buckypaper’ Proclaimed to Potentially Be the Next Revolutionary Material for Car and Electronics Manufacturing. -Light as a feather, but sturdy as steel, the potential next big thing in automobile and electronics manufacturing is making its way through the ranks of serious high performance materials. As reported by the Associated Press, buckypaper, a material that resembles carbon paper, but may prove to have 500 times the strength of steel when stacked, is being considered a viable option for manufacturing cars, air planes, televisions, and other products in a more energy efficient manner.
The molecules in buckypaper are reportedly thousands of times tinier than that of human hair, which contributes to its potential use as a lighter, energy saving alternative to other building products. As of now, the costs of creating the material are relatively high, and it is still in the research stage for commercial use. Researchers are hoping for further developments within the next year that will enable widespread use of the more energy efficient material in commonly used products and technologies.
