Self-regenerating / self-healing
Thanks to the presence of specific chemical functions, the material has self-repairing properties and is able to fight against mechanical damage (cracks) that it may suffer during use, by self repairing and thus keeping on fulfilling its role as a protective layer.
The doping of materials with inhibitor compounds allows the release of the inhibitor compounds in case of damage and exposure of the substrate and the sealing of the defect.
- Multidisciplinary approach combining the chemical synthesis of polymers and their modification by reversible functions, the application of coatings and the characterization of the finished product.
- Knowledge of the choice of doping species according to the type of coating, industrial applications and the targeted substrate.
- Large pool of equipment for synthesis and chemical characterization, coating application and characterization.
