NEI Corp. (Somerset, N.J.) reports that it has completed initial development of a waterborne self-healing coating, Nanomyte MEND-MW. The self-healing capability reportedly reduces end-user costs by minimizing the need to repair and repaint damaged surfaces, and it extends the service life of the structure to which it is applied by maintaining the finish of the original painted surface. Surface scratches and marring in a coating lead to damage on a macroscopic scale, resulting in the coating losing its aesthetic and protective functions. The patent pending, self-healing coating can heal both minor and deep scratches when it is mildly heated. NEI is making Nanomyte MEND samples available for testing by end-users.
