Toyota Motor Corporation has developed paint that can “heal” itself and Lexus will be first to benefit. Lexus are due to upgrade the LS Line which is likely to feature this new paint technology.
The paint can resist scratches caused by fingernails, car-washes and everyday use. The paint is covered by a scratch resistant clear coat that feature ingredients that are encouraged to bond together. The structure of the paint is denser, more flexible and elastic.
If lightly scratched, the paint will repair itself reducing the many scratches cars are prone to accumulate in their daily use. The paint is also resistant to light and acid damage.
