A new pair of plastic jeans made from recycled paper could be the world first plastic underwear.
The jeans have been invented by a team from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and are available for sale online.
The team say they are the first of their kind and that they will be the first pair of disposable jeans made entirely from plastic.
The new pair is available in black, white, and orange.
The material is made of polypropylene (polyethylene), a thin, flexible plastic.
Polyethylene is used in many other products, including plastic bags and other packaging materials.
The paper-free material has a unique property that is difficult to replicate: its density is very low, which makes it a great material for high-performance applications.
The polyethylene does not absorb water and has excellent strength.
“It has all the properties that you want from a material: it’s flexible, it’s very strong, and it has good elasticity, and all of these properties together give it a very high strength,” said David Susskind, a professor of materials science and engineering at MIT.
The fabric is made up of multiple layers of polycarbonate, which is made from carbon nanotubes, which are the same material as polyethylenes.
The nanotube material has the properties of a flexible material, which means it can bend under high pressure, which improves its strength.
A polycarbonic material is also called a biocompatible polyethylenimide (BPPE).
BPPEs are a material that can be manufactured in a number of ways, including by printing, coating, and inks.
But the MIT team says they are different because they have a material in the polymer that can not only be printed, but also made into a continuous layer by embedding a layer of polyethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (PEA) on top.
The researchers are now working on creating a process that can make the material into a fabric that is even more biocool, and that will be used in the next generation of disposable underwear.
“Our goal is to develop a material for the next phase of the human journey, to replace the clothes we wear today,” SussKind told The Guardian.
He said that the team is looking to use the material to create high-tech, lightweight, water-repellent garments, which could be used to make clothes that have a lot of water-resistant properties, such as the ones worn by astronauts.
The MIT team said that they have already seen interest from a number commercial companies, including Samsung, and plans to start production in 2018.
The company says that the material is already being used in various applications, including in clothing and in biofuels, and is already in use for garments for the global market.
The technology could be applied to other high-demand consumer goods such as sunglasses, as well.
The development has been welcomed by the clothing industry, which has expressed interest in the new material.
“We believe the potential for the material in a new range of clothing and apparel products is huge,” said Kevin Apt, president of the US-based industry group, International Shoe Manufacturers and Exporters.
“The material is extremely versatile and offers a number potential applications, such to the production of garments, shoes, and apparel for the consumer,” he added.
Susschard has previously told The Verge that the materials he has developed could be adapted for other materials, including for new high-end electronics.
“I’ve been working on these materials for over a decade,” he said.
“This is a significant step forward in the process.”
The MIT paper describing the material was published in the journal Science Advances.
It was also featured on the TED Radio Hour, where Sussson explained his motivation for making the material.
