Self-healing Coatings: Extending the functional lifetime of protective coatings


Autonomic Materials, the recognized leader in self-healing technology, is giving a webinar on October 11th at 10 am Central time. Don’t miss their presentation to find out how you can extend the lifetime of your protective coatings by using their microencapsulated healing agents.

Autonomic Materials offers AMPARMOR™ self-healing additives used in high performance coatings to repair coating damage immediately after it occurs. Self-healing additives extend long term coating performance by imparting extreme corrosion resistance, maintained adhesion and extended service life after damage in a wide range of applications from high-performance systems for oil & gas and industrial maintenance to consumer applications.

Length: 31 min

Why should you view this webinar?

In nature, damage to an organism elicits an automatic healing response. At Autonomic Materials, we apply this concept to synthetic material design. The result is a new class of smart materials - self-healing polymeric systems that are capable of autonomically repairing themselves after damage. By attending this webinar, you will learn more about:

  • Damage induced self-healing response that restores the integrity and function of protective coatings.
  • Microencapsulated healing agents delivered at the site of damage in response to common physical, mechanical, thermal and related everyday environmental stresses in the workplace.
  • Autonomic damage repair without the need for detection or external intervention.

Who should view this webinar?

Autonomic Materials self-healing AMPARMOR™ additives provide key benefits to high-performance coatings, including improved corrosion protection, extended coating lifetime and reduced maintenance cost, improved protection with maintained adhesion, and potential for aesthetic recovery. As such, this webinar is targeted for:

  • Additives Suppliers
  • Formulators / Compounders
  • Paint Manufacturers
  • End-Users
