Nissan launches self-repairing paint
Japanese carmaker Nissan has introduce what it has claimed to be the world's first clear paint which repairs scratches on painted car surfaces, including the scuffs caused by car-washing machines and driving off-road.

The X-Trail sports utility model has been chosen as the first car in the range to utilize the coating, which contains a highly elastic resin. This stops the scratches from affecting the inner layers of a car's paintwork.

According to Nissan, the new surface is five times more scratch-resistant than conventional clear paints, which are generally applied on top of the base, color to increase the luster and shine of painted car bodywork.

The new paint restores the surface within the space of a day or a week, depending on the kind of abrasive damage caused.

Along with the bodywork, the bumpers and wing mirrors of the Nissan X-Trail will be treated with the new material.

I would imagine this in tune with GPS & The on-board black boxes & video cameras on every corner Hit & run will be a thing of the past .

And the NANO BOTS in my blood stream!

HA! I'd like to see a self fix paint against the Florida "love bug"!

I remember hearing something about this years ago... time will tell how it works out.. What about when someone slams into the side of one of those trucks and twist it up.. It will have to be repaired

They are also working on a sheet metal that will pop back to is intended shape with hot water applied. CRAZY STUFF! Oh those love bugs aren't just in Florida my friend. We need to find a natural predator for those things! Not only are they hard on paint but if you ride a motorcycle you also know they taste terrible.

I can't remember if it was ths month's Car & Driver or Hot Rod (too many mags) that actually had a brief writeup on the paint. They actually got to scratch the clear coat, and then left the car in the sun to heat the surface. The scratches essentially disappeared as the paint self healed (i.e. softened and flattened). My concern with this model is that the paint itself might actually provide LESS protection when it is hot (i.e. in its somewhat pliable state) - which would be 6 months a year here in Dallas.

NO doubt !!
WeirdBeard ,

Its been real dry here so there hasn't been too many swarms of the the Lil "screw bugs".

1st thing to do is clean the area& then coat every area that is effected with Vaseline .

2nd is to wash them ff everyday in the morning after the dew has soaked on them overnight.

I've seen those "memory metals" on the history or discovery channel one works cold the other hot & A bunch more crazy kool stuff


CAB,

Makes you wonder how they will keep it on the car. . .
Stop too fast in a heat wave & boom your paint jobs on the street.

I've had unopened cans of soda explode inside my truck its been so hot in there.among st other melted things .{mostly me}

I wonder if it will crawl off the pavement and re attach its self to your car.

Whats next ?? Hologram paint? virtual auto body?

I guess so Graphic design
sooner than not reality will be blurred completely.

Its real interesting stuff guys. I very much doubt it could heal a deep scratch
though. I bet its just intended to fix or mask minor surface scratches but
I guess time will tell.

I would imagine though that its a two step process. Like the layer above the clear coat contains the magic.

I guess we shall have to just wait and see.. cool stuff eh

Confusions say man with big tool box & no shop is watching stuff rot!

Hmm self healing paint . . so I can just spray it on a rust hole & boom back to factory specs?

Now you got me started

Engine rebuild in a can thats gonna be next. . .

"here honey the next time all the lights & gages go nuts & you keep driving to the next state just pour this on the hood it will find its own way into the motor"& wash & wax it @ the same time.

Sheesh pretty soon only complete dumb arses & rocket scientist will be able to work on cars.

Hey rob ive been waiting on the invisible skin for a while, Most suited to
fast cars on the highway.. Blue lights in your rear view.. Press the button
and your invisible ...

No more blue lights with a police officer saying *** !

Lol.. thats coming too. I heared that aparently there is a new covering thats
getting used in certain places or on certain items that will just do that. Render the object invisible !

It works by letting light pass through, so the light photons do not reflect hence whatever is covered with the stuff is invisible to the naked eye.. Another cool one is a process by where a coating can be made to change color with an electric charge. So next time you go into the showroom you can have the car in any color you want at the press of a button.

Cool stuff, some of it is here now.. and some is coming
