Teijin involved in solar car development

Two Teijin Group companies, Toho Tenax Co Ltd And GH Craft Ltd have supported Japan’s Kogakuin University in developing a car made with carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) for the World Solar Challenge, the world’s biggest solar car race, which will take place in Australia from 6-13 October.

The Teijin Group supplied ultra-lightweight fabric made with Tenax carbon fibre, which was used to design and fabricate the CFRP car body and GH Craft has been involved from the concept design stage to develop the innovative solar car’s all-carbon composite body.

In 2010, Toho Tenax, together with Sakai Ovex Co Ltd developed an ultra-lightweight carbon fibre fabric measuring just 0.06 mm in thickness. The CFRP produced with this material has made it possible to fabricate an ultra-lightweight car body with the stiffness and strength needed to withstand race conditions while reducing bodyweight to an absolute minimum.
