University of Illinois researchers have developed new self-healing materials that do not require extra chemicals or catalysts.
“The key advantage of using this material is that it’s catalyst-free and low-temperature, and can be healed multiple times,” said U. of I. materials science and engineering professor Jianjun Cheng. “This can heal the crack before it causes major problems by propagating.”
Other self-healing material… read more
