Polymers with boron nitride nanotubes are stronger than carbon nanotubes [Registered]

Carbon nanotubes are at least 30 times stronger than bullet-stopping Kevlar by some estimates. When mixed with lightweight polymers such as plastics and epoxy resins, the tiny tubes reinforce the material, like the rebar in a block of concrete. This promises lightweight and strong materials for airplanes, spaceships, cars and even sports equipment.…
