Toray Industries’ carbon fiber material will be used for a range of parts in Toyota Motor Corporation’s MIRAI fuel cell vehicle.

In particular, CFRTP will be used in a stack frame part, equivalent to the vehicle floor. To make the part, Toray and Toyota, developed a material which can achieve a short press molding time suitable for mass production, by developing the characteristics of thermoplastic. Toray says that is the first time in the world that CFRTP will be used for the structural part of a (mass) production vehicle.  

Toray also supplied carbon paper for the electrode substrate of fuel cell stack and a high strength carbon fiber for the high pressure hydrogen tank.
