The tests were conducted with field studies involving two different types of fabrics using two laboratory tests, puncture and laceration tests, as well as White Sharks of three to four meters in length.
The White Shark bite force was measured using load sensors placed between steel plates surrounded by foam.
Professor Huveneers added: “We have found that new fabrics are more resistant to puncture, tear, and White Sharks bites than standard neoprene.
Kıyasla Compared to control fabrics, more force was required to perforate new fabrics (laboratory-based tests), and cuts to new fabrics were smaller and shallower than the standard neoprene of both test types. Laboratory and field tests.
