Teijin Aramid B.V's para-aramid fiber Twaron will be deployed in the solar-powered vehicles developed by the KU Leuven and University of Michigan teams for Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2017.

The KU Leuven team is using Twaron-based parts above the tracking box and in the driver safety canopy to allow the vehicle to send and receive electromagnetic signals, enabling more precise communication and the monitoring of signal transceivers.

The University of Michigan team is using Twaron to reinforce the undercarriage of their vehicle, utilizing the material's superior abrasion resistance and high strength-to-weight ratio.

Toho Tenax America, the Teijin Group's US-based carbon fiber business, will be providing its Tenax carbon fiber to both teams.

In Japan, the Teijin Group supplies advanced high performance materials and technologies to the Kogakuin University Solar Team. Ultra-lightweight fabric made with Tenax carbon fiber, Panlite polycarbonate (PC) resin and Technora para-aramid fiber prepreg are used to reduce the vehicle’s body weight.

V-Lap nonwoven polyester fabric is used for seat cushions, contributing to vehicle weight reduction as well as improving overall driver comfort; Solotex polytrimethylene terephthalate (PTT) fiber is incorporated into the team's uniforms providing comfort and a close fit in what are often harsh race environments; Nanofront ultra-fine polyester fiber is used in the team's driving gloves, improving steering wheel grip.
