Crosby and Bartlett introduce Green Geckskin using renewable materials

Alfred Crosby and PhD alumnus Michael Bartlett, both from Polymer Science and Engineering, introduce Green Geckskin using natural rubber impregnated into stiff natural fiber fabrics such as cotton, hemp and jute. This new product, described in a recent issue of Advanced Materials, has the same extraordinary capabilities as the original: An index-card sized piece can hold 700 pounds on a smooth surface, be easily released, and leaves no residue.
