Problem Addressed

Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) is used in a variety of industrial applications ranging from bullet proof vests to high strength ropes because of its strong mechanical properties. However, UHMWPE is limited in its applications because the bulk material has low thermal conductivity. This technology improves the thermal conductivity of UHMWPE by stretching the polymer chains to create a shish-kebab structure. Additionally, UHMWPE is much cheaper to produce than traditional thermal conductors such as metals.
