Researchers at the University of Michigan are testing out new forms of plastic film that handle heat significantly better than existing films. This new process substitutes water during the process, helping to solidify the material. After spin casting, the resulting film brings the molecules closer together, allowing it to better conduct heat. Film that can handle heat better has a lot of potential in many industries, though this development will still need some time before it’s ready for the market.
