High Performance Material

"The spider makes this material so it can absorb the energy of flying prey. Through doing this they have made a material which, if we can harvest enough, is potentially a high performance material. It may be able to replace materials like plastics. Spider silks are also 1,000 times more energy efficient to produce." - Beth Mortimer, Oxford Silk Group
