Shields up: Nanomaterial bests all others in blocking speeding projectiles

University of Wisconsin-Madison engineers have fabricated a rubbery nanomaterial that outperforms all other materials, including steel and Kevlar, in protecting against high-speed projectile impacts. The research provides insights for using nanostructured polymers to develop new lightweight, high-performance armors. In the future, these armors could potentially be used as a shield on military vehicles to provide … Continued
