Spiderweb tech

Abstract:
A spider web is a type of wonder fiber. It is six times as strong as steel fiber. That means that if a spider web were the thickness of steel fiber, it could bear six times as much weight as steel fiber without breaking. Spider webs are also very resistant to water, cold, heat, and fire. Microscopic threads that can be spun from them are suitable for the software, medical, and nanotechnology engineering industries.
