This doesn't appear to be "self-healing", they have to inject the material into the damaged area.  It seems to be basically the same as if they were using any two-part epoxy.  It's cool, but it's not self-healing, to be that, the repair material would need to be part of the damaged material beforehand, like the coagulating blood the article is incorrectly comparing this to.  You cut yourself, the blood flows into the cut, it's already there.  Make it work that way and you can call it self healing.

There was an article not too long ago about self-healing auto paint, too.
