Default Re: Webbing formula - Part 1

Guys, I know that callulose acetate is a big subject around here, but why not nanocellulose. I know that Widow couldn't get his hands on it due to the market not being ready yet, but you can make it youself! All you have to do is pound 100% pure cellulose (which I know walt has) and put it through an acid, such as hydochloric (the process is called hydrolysis). If it doesn't work as well, you don't have to switch. It's more of a gel, so i would work well with gel spinning (if anyone is still using that). Cellulose acetate is better for electro-spinning. Maybe you could use BOTH! I know that they can also be solved by water if tweaked a bit (if that helps anyone, but it won't harden quickly, unless there's a solution that I haven't found) so that you could hold it in plastics. Just an idea anyway.
