A number of car manufacturers have been using the scratch-proof coating for sometime. The coating essentially ‘heals’ any fine scratches on the car. For instance, Nissan’s ‘Scratch Guard Coat’ accomplishes this quite well and is so good that it has also been in a certain iPhone case. Now, a team of researchers has created a new self-cleaning car coating technology.


This essentially means that you will no longer have to worry about cleaning your car. The special new coating will automatically clean up your car. But how does this work?

This new coating has been created by researchers at The Netherlands’ Eindhoven University of Technology. The researchers claim that they have been able to accomplish this by placing functional chemical groups at the end of special ‘stalks.’ These stalks are mixed through the coating and are a part of it. So when the exterior layer of a coating is removed through, say scratching, the stalks under it re-orient themselves so that the new surface makes the car coating look like new.

With the help of this new coating technology, it would soon be possible to create highly water-resistant coatings, the researchers say. Any scratches on the coating will be automatically healed, making water droplets roll off the car and take the dirt with them. And this means you no longer have to worry when your car takes a nice shower in the rain since that would roll the coating and healing function into action, thus cleaning your car.

And this technology need not be limited to cars alone. In fact, it can be actively deployed across a whole range of other products such as smartphone displays, aircrafts, solar panels and contact lenses.

    Pintura com poder de “cura” e ainda pode limpar o carro sozinho? Era isso que precisava para o meu carro.
