Nike HyperAdapt Teardown: The Future is Now
February 21, 2017 in Plastics INsight
Growing up, we all dreamed of sporting a pair of Marty McFly’s AirMags. The idea of slipping on a fresh pair of self-lacing sneakers seemed, at the time, wildly far-fetched (like the notion of handheld computer tablets, self-driving cars, and hoverboards). Now, what appeared to be a distant dream, has become an exciting reality — thanks to the team at Nike.

Effects of tempering on adhesion of liquid silicone rubber to thermoplastics
Tempering improves the mechanical properties of liquid silicone rubber, but also decreases its ability to adhere to engineering thermoplastics.
Conductive polymer/silver- coated textile composites with antibacterial properties
A composite made up of a conductive polymer, poly(!italic!o!/italic!-anisidine), and metallic silver particles imparts antibacterial activity and electrical conductivity when deposited on a nonwoven textile fabric.
An improved strength tensor-based failure criterion with stress interactions
A new failure criterion includes tensor stress interaction components that can be computed using minimal experimental data depicting the slope of the failure surface at distinct stress axes intersections.
