USM professor creates plastic that heals

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

USM professor, Marek Urban and a team of Southern Miss researchers have produced a plastic that "bleeds" when scratched, stressed or torn then heals itself, and can do so repeatedly.

The research could lead to innovations such as smart phone, tablet screens, and even cars that fix themselves when scratched.
