(ORDO NEWS) — Chinese scientists have conducted a study of the structure of Xuan paper in order to determine the reasons that give it high flexibility and strength. The research results were published on the scientific information portal Phys.org.
It turned out that the considered paper fibers contain and intertwine with each other a large number of nanofibers together with microfibers. The result of this weave is a natural bionic 3D net that gives the paper its famous characteristics.
With the results obtained, Chinese scientists were able to create a similar three-dimensional structure using the described fibers. As a result, the researchers obtained a completely transparent rough film.
Experiments have shown that the developed film has the same flexibility and strength as Xuan paper. In addition, it was possible to achieve a high degree of light transmission, and the film can withstand heating up to 250 degrees Celsius.
According to scientists, the used matte film technology can be applied in large enterprises. The developed film can be widely used. For example, it can be used in high-precision optical and flexible electronic systems.
