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, repairing itself and thus continuing to fulfil its role as a protective layer.

The doping of materials with inhibiting compounds allows, in the event of damage and exposure of the substrate, their release and the sealing of the defect.

Our strengths :

  • 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, application of coatings and their characterization.
