Self- healing Material Market: Polymer Coating Systems enhance material longevity

Published on : Oct 01, 2019

Albany, New York, October 1, 2019: Self- healing materials that include polymers and metals are employed in various engineering applications owing to their positive attributes such as increased lifetime, enhanced product safety and reduced replacement costs. Polymer classes including thermosets, elastomers and thermoplastics exhibit the self-healing potential that can be initiated automatically or with external stimulus such as pressure and energy.

Polymers and composites serving as structural materials are vulnerable to various chemical, thermal and mechanical forces and require quick and effective repair methods. “Hot plate” is the traditional approach of healing that involves interdiffusion of polymer pieces, thereby restoring strength of the material. Although this approach worked, it yielded a healed material very weak at welding point, further susceptible to damages. Self-healing materials are preferred as structural materials as they can recover their mechanical properties such as tensile strength, surface smoothness and fracture toughness after damage, with/without external stimulus.

These insights are according to the intelligence report, titled, “Global Self-Healing Material Market,” which has been freshly added to Market Research Hub’s (MRH) over-arching repository.

Thermoplastics regain mechanical strength

Various types of polymers that include amorphous, black copolymers, fiber re-enforced composites and semi-crystalline polymers, display self-healing property like -increase in mechanical strength when two of the same polymers are brought in contact above glass transition and molecular diffusion takes place across the interface. Self-healing property in thermoplastics involves various mechanisms including recombination of chain ends, reversible bond formation, self-healing by nano-particles, molecular inter-diffusion, photo induced healing and living polymer approach.

Self-healing coating formulations discovered by intense research and developments, protect and provide prolonged service life to metallic structures and big infrastructures against various detrimental environmental conditions. Polymer coating systems are employed to act as barrier for the metal surfaces from all possible corrosive attacks.

The challenge before the self-healing material market is to counter/eliminate the nano-level material fatigue induced by various factors that include thermal effect, corrosion and fatigue loading, which amplifies into macro levels and fails the material.
