World’s Strongest Glue! Available Only From Nature!
"There are obvious applications since this adhesive works on wet surfaces...One possibility would be as a biodegradable surgical adhesive."
- Yves Brun, an Indiana University bacteriologist
Bloomington, IN - The bacterium Caulobacter crescentus uses the toughest glue on Earth to stick to river rocks, and now scientists are trying to figure out how to produce the stuff.
The adhesive can withstand an enormous amount of stress, equal to the force felt by a quarter with more than three cars piled on top of it. That’s two to three times more force than the best retail glues can handle.
