Paper Title:
Compression Behavior of a Self-Healing Fibre Reinforced Epoxy Composite
  Abstract

The concept of introducing self-healing capabilities in polymer materials and systems has been based on mimicking biological self-healing materials and systems, for example, materials like proteins have phenomenal capabilities in self-healing damaged biological structures. This work has been extended to investigate self-healing capabilities of fibre reinforced epoxy composites. Microencapsulated epoxy and mercaptan healing agents were incorporated into a glass fibre reinforced epoxy matrix to produce a polymer composite capable of self-healing. The specimens containing the microencapsulated epoxy and mercaptan healing agents did gain excellent strength and achieved a healing efficiency up to 140%.
