Consider the range of applications, from toys to the frame structure of space stations, or from delicate nylon fiber in pantyhose to Kevlar, which is used in bulletproof vests. ."It's an important piece of work, because it's the first time someone's shown you can record multiple holographic images, and by just stretching the polymer, you can basically change the image." Artificial skin made of a silicone polymer may be the future of anti-aging efforts.

Credit: LibreTexts, researchers are experimenting with many different types of polymers, aiming to further medicine development and enhance products we already use.These are considered inorganic polymers.

Polymers can be made to mimic cotton, silk, and wool fibers; porcelain and marble; and aluminum and zinc. .The Carbon-Fiber Future: It's About More Than Speed.Plastic from soft drink and water bottles can be spun into fiber for the production of carpet or made into new food bottles. .
