    A custom resin transfer molding (RTM) method for the fabrication of carbon fiber composites using thermally reversible highly cross linked polymeric matrices was developed. The resulting material quality and healing efficiency was assessed using X-ray phase contrast micro-tomography. The X-ray investigations revealed that partial healing of extended cracks occurred in samples that were kept at 90°C for 2 hours.
