Researchers with Shanghai institute of Ceramics, Chinese Academy of Science developed a new type of paper that is resistant to fire on 14 February 2014. The research was published in Chemistry - A European Journal.
The paper will not catch fire even at 1000 degrees Celsius temperature. This new paper is formed from calcium phosphate compound.
The novel kind of inorganic paper is flexible and incombustible, but still feels like ordinary paper. It can be torn, folded, and destroyed by strong acid.
It can be used for important documents to preserve for long periods of time.
