One of the major factors preventing the exploitation of auxetic materials before now has always been that most examples are only auxetic through a small part of their strain range. The helical auxetic geometries being developed at Auxetix, however, are functional from zero to full strain, and also have a far greater effect.
It should be noted that Auxetix has recently taken a strategic decision to focus all its resources on its blast-protection and ballistic-protection technologies. All other developments are therefore ‘on hold’ until further notice.
