Autonomic Materials Incorporated(AMI)

Autonomic Materials Incorporated (AMI) provides a range of self-healing solutions compatible with most coatings chemistries. AMI’s proprietary self-healing additives give coatings the ability to repair themselves when they are damaged without the need for any external intervention. This translates into lengthened recoating intervals, reduced labor costs and minimized equipment downtime. AMI is presently working in partnership with coatings producers and major coatings consumers to make self-healing coatings a practical reality by addressing the large market need for improved resistance to corrosion.
