New high-performance fibers from spider silk proteins

September 19, 2011 |

In Germany, AMSilk and Fraunhofer Institute have joined together to develop a new spin process for making high performance fibers from AMSilk’s spider silk proteins.  This collaboration will match AMSilk’s material and biochemical expertise with Fraunhofer’s expertise in developing spin processes for biopolymers.

The partners expect to deliver a new process for making artificial spider silk fibers for high tech applications.  The development collaboration will run over at least two years. AMSilk will own commercial rights of the results with certain benefits for Fraunhofer IAP.
