Self-Healing Paint Makes The Jump From Fenders To Phones

November 30, 2009

Nissan developed self-healing paint to protect vehicles from the surface damage caused by parking lots, home garages, and the like. Known as "Scratch Shield", it's appeared on a handful of vehicles in the U.S. like the 2009 Infiniti G37, but now the paint's making the leap to objects that see much more daily abuse: cell phones. Nissan has licensed the "Scratch Shield" technology to handset maker NTT DoCoMo for its Japanese phones, with the possibility of extending rights to other companies down the line.  Makers of cell phone cases are sure to be upset, but the rest of us are jumping for potential joy.
