Its most prominent features such as superior energy absorption capacity, fracture resistance and cut resistance, make auxetic materials one of the most attractive and emerging materials on the market.Download Free
In this eBook [only available in portuguese] discover the potential, versatility and variety of applications of this highly resistant material.
Auxetic materials are different from conventional materials because they have negative Poisson's ratio as the main characteristic. Consequently, they have an unusual behavior: when tensioned longitudinally, they increase their cross section. This behavior makes them interesting in several application areas where the absorption of impact energy and resistance to cutting, drilling and abrasion are important factors, including protective clothing in various fields, military material, ballistic materials, acoustic insulation, protection systems against explosives, among others.
