Exciting: A flexible bio-glue for healing wounds!

Scientists have developed a super, strong ,flexible adhesive material inspired by the glue secreted by slugs that sticks to biological tissues without causing toxicity.

The tough adhesive is bio-compatible and binds to tissues with a strength comparable to the body’s own resilient cartilage.

The key feature of the material is the combination of a very strong adhesive force and the ability to transfer and dissipate stress, which have so far historically not been integrated into a single adhesive.

In experimental tests more than three times the energy was needed to disrupt the tough adhesive ‘s bonding compared with other medical grade adhesives.
