Researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, just recently announced that they developed a new type of glue, dubbed “nano glue” that is not only inexpensive, but can supposedly bond 'nearly anything' together. The glue is supposedly “100,000 times thinner than a human hair” and the glue will get stronger when it is heated- “ultimately going all the way up to temperature of 700 degrees Celsius before reaching its peak. The researchers who developed the glue see many uses for this glue including “applications in nano and micro electric devices, not to mention high-heat environments- for instance holding paint to the inside of a jet engine.” The glue is expected to go on sale for $35 dollars per 100 grams.
