Fast self-healing polymers

Fast self-healing polymers

       We developed a novel polymer which exhibits ultrafast self-healing properties (can be efficiently healed at room temperature within 60 s) although it is quite tough and strong (with Young’s modulus of 120.6  8.2 kPa, elongation 48000%, and adhesive stress values of 30–700 kPa for various substrates). This unique material will have wide commercial applications not only as a sealant, but also in many other industrial fields, including electrochemical sensors, wearable electronics, and
biomedical adhesives.
