Of note, people have discovered that bamboo performs well for more than a century as Thomas Edison even experimented with it when making the first light bulb. Moreover, they have found that the bamboo performed better than some types of metal in tests like tensile strength or how much it can resist being pulled apart. And, a bamboo tree matures rapidly (averaging 2 to 5 years) compared to other trees. This fast regenerative property means that manufacturing companies like Ford will be no worries of its kind being depleted anytime soon when producing cars.
Over the past several years, Ford has been looking at the viability of using bamboo in its forthcoming vehicle interiors even as an extra strong parts by combining it with plastic. The Ford’s researchers have shown that bamboo performs way better than many tested synthetic and natural fibers in different tests, from tensile strength tests to impact strength tests. Perhaps, at this moment, the company is not ready to announce when the bamboo will find its way into a production, but claims the bamboo can resist more than 212 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes it suitable to many different applications.
