Self-healing elastic polymer materials (OSIRIS)

Acting as sealing and damping material, elastomers play a significant role in many technical systems. The project partners develop a new generation of this material capable of healing hairline cracks. The researchers thus make an important contribution to technical system operating safety and resource efficiency of the widely used elastomer components.
