Canada : Nano route to spider silk

Abstract:
Nexia of Canada has decided to refocus its fibre development towards biopolymer sales and specialized nano-scale fibre applications for spider silk away from traditional fibres and yarns. This decision was prompted by the emerging interest in nanofibres and by the ongoing technical challenges of producing bulk, cost competitive spider silk fibres with superior mechanical properties, especially strength.
