Mussel serve as inspiration for a new type of underwater adhesive

Post  bejoy on Mon Nov 07, 2016 6:36 am

Even the strongest glues breakdown when soaked, but one scientist at Michigan Technological University (MTU) has created a nature-inspired adhesive (glue) that stays sticky when wet. With support from the Office of Naval Research (ONR), Dr Bruce Lee, an assistant professor of biomedical engineering at MTU, uses a protein produced by mussels to create a reversible synthetic glue that not only adheres securely underwater—but also may be turned on and off with electricity. bit.ly 2fKIalR
