DYNAMIC SELF-SEALING POLYMER

Self-healing polymer quickly returns to original shape

Self Healing Polymer Quickly Returns

to Original Shape

  • Memory polymer

  • Heals itself

  • Flows to open wounds

  • Does not need aromatics to swell

  • Compatible with bio & synthetic fuels

  • Repairable

 

Current fuel cells use WWII-era uncured rubber to self-seal ballistic damage.  The rubber swells in aromatic fuels to plug the holes.  Once the reaction happens, it is irreversible and over time degrades the entire tank.

 

 

 

Our advanced blend of elastomeric polymers and additives self-heal when punctured, improving aircraft and aircrew safety through greater ballistic protection and reduced weight.

A MATERIAL REVOLUTION

RESPONSE TECHNOLOGIES ADVANCED MATERIALS INNOVATION

A side-by-side test of legacy sealant versus Response Technologies' Dynamic Self-Sealing Polymer illustrates how quickly the gel self-heals when punctured.
