Researchers, Evonik develop self-healing polymer network

1:50 PM MDT | April 14, 2014 | Francinia Protti-Alvarez

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT; Karlsruhe, Germany) and Evonik Industries have developed a polymer network that ensures good short-term healing properties of the material under mild heating, KIT says. The researchers use the possibility of crosslinking functionalized fibers or small molecules by a reversible chemical reaction for the production of self-healing materials. The network exhibits strong healing properties within a few minutes at comparably low temperatures of 50-120 degrees Celsius, KIT says.  The self-healing properties can be...
