Toray has decades of experience in developing materials and components for automobile powertrain systems.
With products ranging from lightweight, heat-resistant engineering plastics for internal combustion engine parts,
to electronic devices for controlling electric vehicle motors, and PPS polymers and
films for batteries and digital information processing systems,
Toray is driving the future of the automobile industry.
Advanced Toray materials for electric motor power control units are helping manufacturers create the next generation of eco-friendly cars. From high-reliability TOREFAN® film and heat-resistant TORELINA® PPS resin for condensers, to high-performance resist materials for SiC semiconductors that can withstand temperatures up to 500C°, Toray products help ensure stable power delivery.
Toray is also playing a role in the never-ending quest to improve lithium ion battery performance. With next-generation anode materials that ensure high output and extended driving range, and SETELA™ separator film and other high-performance materials, Toray is a powerful source of innovation in lithium ion battery development.
Fuel cell vehicles are rapidly making their way to the market, and Toray products such as TORAYCA® carbon paper for anode substrates and TORAYCA® carbon fiber composites for hydrogen fuel tanks are examples of how Toray is keeping pace with the automotive industry's evolving powertrain needs.
