Please note that we do not manufacture any products.

Definition of auxetic behaviour:

‘While most materials get thinner when stretched and fatter when compressed, auxetic materials do just the opposite – they get fatter when stretched, and thinner when compressed’.

increased safety
> for e.g. materials that change colour with tension
improved energy absorption
> e.g. ballistic barrier materials
Enhanced performance
> e.g. lighter or stronger composite structures
Improved utility
> e.g. medical sutures that don't damage body tissues
