Haeling Agents' Risks


To what extent migh the embedded healing agents interrupt or weaken the structure of the material or even lead to a potential increase in the risk of failure?

The embedded healing materials will surely affect the mechanical properties of bulk healing materials. The effect depend on the nature and amount of embedded materials. The are instances (published literature), where an increases in the elastic modulus and hardness was observed. Also there are instances, where an decrease in the mechanical properties were observed.
