Self-Healing Chemistry: Delivery of Two-Part Self-Healing Chemistry via Microvascular Networks (Adv. Funct. Mater. 9/2009)
Microvascular self-healing of a brittle coating is accomplished by supplying fluid healing agents from an underlying network of microchannels. Dual independent networks filled with a two-part healing chemistry (epoxy resin and curing agent) that repeatedly heal damage in the coating up to 16 consecutive times are reported by K. S. Toohey et al. on page 1399.
