When you think of Kevlar, you're probably thinking of a bulletproof vest but it's more than that. What exactly is this magical material?

Kevlar is simply a super-strong plastic. If that sounds unimpressive, remember that there are plastics—and there are plastics. There are literally hundreds of synthetic plastics made by polymerization (joining together long chain molecules) and they have widely different properties. Kevlar's amazing properties are partly due to its internal structure (how its molecules are naturally arranged in regular, parallel lines) and partly due to the way it's made into fibers that are knitted tightly together.

Now wouldn't it be great if these everyday items were of Kevlar material:

1. With Kevlar-coated cups, even the Thor smash won't break it

Cups will not only be Thor-proof but childproof as well.

2. Those plastic forks and spoons that break when you eat your fried chicken? Problem solved.

3. Knives will be so strong, they can cut through bones like jelly

4. Kevlar-coated plastic bags means there's no need to double bag when you go shopping

Even the heaviest stuff won't pierce through, unlike with those useless thin plastic bags.
