Super-Durable, Self-Healing Coating for Waterproof Cars & Rooftops

University of Michigan engineers have created a self-healing, water-repellent spray-on coating developed that is hundreds of times more durable than its counterparts and could enable waterproofing of vehicles, clothing, rooftops, and countless other surfaces. Here, the research team demonstrates the durability of the repellent coating under just two of various conditions that it can weather.
