  • Cambridge researchers developing self-healing concrete
    by Gina Mikalauskaite on 30th November 2018 at 10:29 am

      Researchers from the University of Cambridge are using microencapsulation technologies developed by Dolomite Microfluidics to create self-healing construction materials. The Geotechnical and Environmental Research Group are developing microcapsules containing ‘healing’ agents – such as exoxy or polyurethane – which can be added to building materials to allow self-repair of small cracks which develop over...
