Abstract

A microencapsulated self-healing system was incorporated into a woven S2 glass reinforced epoxy composite using a hand lay-up technique. A testing protocol based on compression after impact reveals significant (and impact-energy-dependent) recovery of compressive properties in self-healing panels with low-velocity impact damage.
