Spinifex grass, which grows in large quantities in Australia. Scientists plan to use its properties to create a latex of a new generation, thinner and durable material. From the grass, as it turned out, you can highlight a nano pulp. This material is a practical additive to the latex.
Membrane condoms will become more strong, flexible and elastic. According to the first tests, the addition of nanocellulose increases the strength of condoms by 20-40% compared with standard samples.
The opening will allow manufacturers to create thinner products from latex without sacrificing strength. Will help development in medicine: gloves and many other consumables for doctors are made of latex.
Note about useful properties of herbs Spinifex to aboriginal Australia has long been known. Plant since ancient times is used as a glue.
