Toray also manufactures materials for active and passive safety systems
that help protect drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.
From sensor materials and radar-permeable films for millimeter-wave radar systems that help prevent accidents,
to airbag fabrics, seatbelts, and impact-absorbing nanoalloy crash pads that help reduce injuries,
Toray works with manufacturers worldwide to make driving safer.
Toray PROMILAN® functional fabric for airbags and Tetoron® polyester for seatbelts are widely used in the automotive industry, and have an excellent track record for safety and reliability.
Toray uses its exclusive NANOALLOY® technology to produce an extensive range of crash pads. Capable of absorbing high levels of energy without cracking, the pads can help protect the passenger cabin from collision impact.
Toray RAYTELA™ optical fiber is used in sensors incorporated into vehicle bumpers. Fiber optic collision sensors integrated into automobile bumpers can trigger the engine hood to open on impact, reducing the potential severity of pedestrian injury.
Toray materials are also used in the collision avoidance systems and sensing devices found on today's most advanced vehicles. Toray FALDA® adhesive films, for example, are a key component of compact millimeter-wave radar systems, and Toray optical materials are used in the image sensors and image recognition systems that are essential to the development of tomorrow's self-driving cars.
