When a scientist accidentally discovered the world’s lightest and strongest fibre in 1963, he couldn’t have imagined that it would change the world. This incredible ‘superhero’ fibre has been used to create ultra strong ropes, bulletproof vests, Formula 1 seat belts, America’s Cup yacht sails and even medical kits. Now, after years of development, the fibre is ready to be incorporated in fabrics – and will undoubtedly change the future of sportswear and apparel.
