University of Akron professor develops super-strong, reusable adhesive that could be used in automobile and aerospace industries

A University of Akron professor has developed a super-strong, reusable adhesive that works on numerous surfaces.

A company he co-founded has been awarded a $736,000 National Science Foundation grant to prepare the adhesive, spun from polymer fibers, for commercial use.

The product, developed by Josh Wong, a professor of mechanical engineering, was inspired by the ability of geckos, spiders, insects and other creatures to stick to walls and hang upside down from surfaces.

Read about it in The Plain Dealer and Akron Beacon Journal.
