Metal Rubber TM is a unique self-assembled nancomposite material that combines the high electrical conductivity of metals with the low mechanical modulus of elastomers. The self- assembly process allows the simultaneous modification of both conductivity and modulus during manufacturing. Maximum electrical conductivity is 5x10-6 W cm. Maximum elongation is approximately 200%. The electrical conductivity varies slightly with elongation.
Cost Small sheet of 6 inch² x 1 mm think cost $1000 Large sheet of 12 inch² x 1 mm thick$5000 Rectangular strip samples 2.5 inch long, 0.5 inch wide, 1 mm thick $500 for pack of five
What's so Special stretch to about 200 to 300 percent of its original length and completely reform withstand exposure to many different kinds of chemicals (from jet fuel to acetone) withstand extreme temperature heated up to 700 degrees Fahrenheit, and cooled to minus 167 degrees Fahrenheit Can be boiled overnight in water
