Self-healing mussel-inspired material could have packaging application
from Healthcare Packaging
Mussels cling to solid surfaces with the aid of an adhesive protein and plastic-like fibers that can repair themselves if molecular bonds are broken. A recent article from New Scientific discussed an innovative material that mimics these properties, and it could be used in robot joints, self-healing body armor, or even packaging to protect fragile cargo from accidental dropping.
