Study of Feasibility of Heat Melt Adhesive Being Used in Crack Self-Healing of Cement-Based Materials
Based on detailed consideration of the autonomic healing concept of microencapsulated healing agent, micro- bacteria induced calcite and shape memory alloys, our research team proposed a new self-healing technique coupled with of SMA and heat-melt adhesive. In this article, chemical stability and bonding strength with cementitious materials of EVA heat-melt adhesive were tested. Experimental results show that EVA heat-melt adhesive may contain the ability being used in self-healing techniques coupled with SMA.
