Scientists are on the verge of developing a new technological material that is capable of self-healing. The invention is currently in the process of testing. Just imagine, you broke the screen of your smartphone, and after 20 minutes it is like new again.
This was stated by researchers from the Korea Institute of Science and Technology, and they also reported that the main ingredient in this invention is linseed oil. The developers added this oil to a transparent polyimide (glass substitute), in which flax oil in microcapsules is mixed with silicone and in this case is capable of self-healing. When the polyimide breaks, microcapsules with linseed oil break with it, which, interacting with air, solidifies and the material is restored. Agree, such an invention can relieve the headaches of many smartphone owners.
The entire recovery process takes place at normal room temperature. Just 18 ° C is enough for the phone screen to begin to "heal" and become like new again. In addition, high humidity and temperature can only speed up the display refresh process. On average, this material can repair 91% of the damaged surface in just 20 minutes.
Now we have to wait for such a development to appear in the Apple iPhone.
