sponge swimsuit

Most of us enjoy going for a swim once in a while. Wouldn’t it be nice if your swimsuit could clean the water? A material created by University of California, Riverside engineers, can be used to make a swimsuit that can clean water as the wearer swims. Called Sponge, the material is derived from heated sucrose. It has a high porous structure that is super hydrophobic. It repels water but absorbs harmful materials.

Here is how the material behaves:

The Sponge material can absorb up to 25 times its own weight and it doesn’t release the absorbed materials unless it is heated at a temperature exceeding 1,000 degrees Celsius.

It simply tramps contaminants and cleans the water without exposing your skin to harmful materials. More information is available here.
