It’s Nature’s miracle fibre: a biodegradable polymer that is stronger than steel, lightweight, yet durable.Called nanocrystalline cellulose, or NCC, this renewable and recyclable resource could be used as a performance enhancer in everything from automotive panels and aircraft parts to paint, adhesives and resins — even medical products such as adhesive bandages and gauze. Nanocrystalline...
