Shape Memory Natural Rubber (SMNR) – Cold programmable shape memory polymer

Shape Memory Natural Rubber (SMNR) is a shape memory polymer (SMP) with outstanding features. Compared to conventional SMPs SMNR is characterized by its property of cold programming, large memory capacity under extremely large deformation (up to 1000%), mechanical energy (up to 4.88 J/g) and a physically adjustable trigger temperature (of between -25 and +50 ° C).

In addition to conventional thermal stimuli SMNR can also be triggered by mechanical stress and liquid as well as vapour solvent. This can be used for various applications.
