Introduction
Tremendous engineering application of polymers
Long-term durability and reliability are still
problematic
Damage at microscopic level is difficult to
perceive or cure
Self-healing in animals and plants
Work in progress to integrate self-healing
capability into polymers
Classification
Intrinsic Self-Healing
Polymer have ability to heal crack by themselves

Extrinsic Self-Healing
Healing agent have to be pre-embedded
Intrinsic Self-Healing
Specific performance of polymer matrices enables
self-healing under certain simulation
Simulation may be of heat, light, mechanical
forces etc.
Autonomic healing is not developed for the time
being



*Based on physical interaction

*Based on chemical interaction

Intrinsic Self-Healing
Extrinsic Self-Healing
Matrix resin itself is not healable one
Healing agent has to encapsulated and
embedded in the material
During crack growth, it destroy fragile capsule
Healing agent rises in crack due to capillary effect
and heal the crack
Based on healant loaded pipeline
Hollow glass tubes and glass fibers

Benefits
Improving product safety and reliability and to
extend product lifetimes.
Improved toughness
Reduced waste disposal
Building sustainable society


Challenges
Cost of manufacturing of such material
Storage of healing agent inside the material for a
long period of time
Initiation of healing
Healing agent should strongly bound with material
and be stable


Application
Transportation
Military
Medical dental/artificial body replacements
Electronics
Paints, Coatings, and Adhesives
Civil construction
Sporting Goods
Conclusion
Achievements in field of self-healing polymer are
far from satisfactory
It provide wide range of opportunity for future
development of polymeric material
For the moment extrinsic self-healing technique is
easier for large scale usage
For long term view, synthesis of new polymer
accompanied by intrinsic self-healing and
automatic trigger would be reasonable solution
