I ask this because im thinking that something thats extremely sticky like byssal threads of mussels could possibly create strong materials through their adhesive properties. I know there is like industrial superglued and resins but i was thinking along the lines of biological fibres like byssal threads and spider silk that could form complex 3d lattice structures to create this strength and bulk solidity. Thank you for any input.
