Smart Polymer Applications Entering Mainstream Markets
from By Don Rosato
Properties inherent in shape memory polymers and other smart polymers have the potential to be game-changers across many industries. In the automotive field, these advanced materials may eventually lead to vehicle subsystems that can self-heal in the event of damage, or that can be designed to change color or appearance. In the medical field, smart polymers are being chemically formulated to sense specific environmental changes in biological systems and adjust in a predictable manner.
