Self-healing pipes

Gas pipes statistically are likely to sustain (minor) damage such as abrasions in their lifetime.  This may occur in manufacture, installation, or due to operational and environmental factors. These types of damage create stress points which over time can produce cracks which propagate, especially as the pipe condition deteriorates to cause leaks. Gnosys have been working on new technologies to produce a polymer that self-heals, relieving the stress and restoring pipe integrity.
