Spanish scientists say, has successfully developed the world’s first self-healing polymer, which can automatically repair outlook.
According to the British Daily Mail reported that the famous actor Robert – Patrick (journal Materials Horizons) in the 1991 science fiction film “Terminator 2” plays the liquid metal killer robots – T-1000, which has immortality, when the body is being shot can automatically heal. At present, the Spanish scientists say, has successfully developed the world’s first self-healing polymer, which can automatically repair outlook.
This latest study, published in the Royal Society of Chemistry journal “Materials Horizon”, which is the world’s first without intervention, will be able to restore itself polymers.
The electrical chemistry from San Sebastian city center researchers said, this strange material is able to automatically heal all for the two together, 97% of the test samples in two hours to complete healing.
According to scientists Alai Benitez – Leike Luo (Alaitz Rekondo) such person, hand stretch the material is not easy, this material at room temperature, with self-healing functionality without any additional intervention, such as: heating or light.
Scientists emphasize that due to similar polymers have been used in many commercial production, the polymer is attractive, easy to put in real industrial applications.
