I came across this, and after seeing other posts over time about self-healing polymers and self-healing plastics, I knew it would only be a matter of
time before they figured out how to do a self-healing rubber or tire.
Well, here it is:
Please note, that the video on the page is not showing an actual tire itself, but the rubber being tested conceptually.
It shows conceptually that the rubber re-binds to itself with the same amount of elasticity and ability to carry tension without the process of
vulcanization needing to be carried out again. That, all by itself, is a MAJOR accomplishment in the field of applied materials and is going to
quietly make waves across the auto industry as well as many others.
What say you ATS, what other applications of this can you conjure up?
