Researchers have created a biomimetic underwater glue modeled after shellfish

The new adhesive bonds objects including wood, Teflon, and polished aluminum underwater better than existing glues, say researchers from Purdue University. The new bio-glue was molded after the adhesive proteins of mussels, which have the ability to bond their bodies to a number of surfaces under the harshest environments.
