ExpertRepair

Two different technologies produce self-healing polymers:

Encapsulation : encapsulated reactive components which are released when damages arise and reconstitute the material.

ExpertRepair : materials capable to reforming their initial shape due to the high mobility of the polymer chains. They are hyper-branched polymers with glass transition temperatures below the temperature of use.

The healing time depends directly on temperature, so with temperatures far above the glass transition, self-healing can be immediate.

ADVANTAGES

  • Temperature and time for self-healing can be accurately adjusted in a broad temperature range

  • ExpertRepair products can be filled and used as a matrix for composite materials

  • Mechanical properties can be adjusted for a given application

APPLICATIONS

  • Aerospace

  • Military

  • Car Industry

  • Medical

  • Coating for wires

  • Coating for tires
