Self healing film repairs scratches

A Japanese company has developed a special film they say self-repairs minor scratches.

Currently being trialed on computer screens, a whole host of applications are possible including smartphone screens and most exctigin to us, glasses.

The material is a special form of PET Polyester at 1/1000mm thick is supposedly able to ‘cure’ at room temperature, repairing scratches within 10 seconds and last 20,000 cycles before needing replaced.

The company has not released the product for independent verification and we have no idea of it’s optical qualities but it certainly a very interesting development and could lead to the end of that age old problem of scratched lenses.
