Strong and Efficient Self-healing Adhesive Based on Dynamic Quaternization Cross-links

Abstract

Self-healing adhesive (SHA) is a derivative application of self-healing materials with remarkable practical potential for re-bondable, adjustable and long-term adhesion. However, reports of SHAs are extremely limited because it is difficult to meet both of the two requirements, high strength and efficient self-healing property, which may greatly limit their application. In this study, the bottleneck is overcome by introducing of alternating rigid and flexible segments in the dynamic quaternization cross-links of poly(1,2,3-triazolium) vitrimer (VPTA) adhesives. In consequence, the VPTA adhesive demonstrates particularly high adhesive strength of 23.7 MPa, compared to the reported SHAs (≤ 7.5 MPa). The adhesive joints of VPTA can self-heal after completely broken for 20 times, while maintaining strengths all above 10 MPa, which is rarely reported. Furthermore, this adhesive also exhibits excellent solvent resistance, high durability, and good creep resistance. The structural design strategy may serve as a versatile method for polymers to prepare strong and efficient SHAs.
