Polymer that heals like skin 'very close' to industrial-scale production

Marek Urban and his team write in the journal Science about how they were able to give self-healing qualities to polymers that are used in relatively inexpensive commodities, such as paints, plastics and coatings. 'It's not available at the industrial scale, but it's very close,' said Urban, who is the J.E. Sirrine Foundation Chair and Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Clemson University.
