Technology of the Day

Healable Resins

CRG is currently developing a self-healing version of shape memory polymer (SMP) called Veriflex® EH. This healable SMP resin will enable increased survivability for manned and unmanned air vehicles, spacecraft, habitats for space exploration missions, automobiles, and more.

Veriflex EH is an epoxy-based resin that will be a direct replacement for current aerospace-grade epoxy resins. Veriflex EH can be processed using vacuum-assisted resin transfer molding (VARTM), RTM, or wet lay-up techniques. CRG is also developing a prepreg formulation.
