A solar-powered vehicle from the University of Michigan and supported by Ashland Specialty Chemical, was unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Named MomentUM1 by the Michigan Solar Car Team, the car represents the innovative transportation materials and tailored solutions of Ashland. The vehicle, which uses Ashland’s Arotool 2001 resin and gel coat for the tooling, is made with a carbon-fibre epoxy body.
“The University of Michigan was looking for low shrinkage and heat resistance in the creation of its solar-powered vehicle, and we were happy to deliver with our line of resins and gel coats,” said Larry (Dean) Doza, national sales manager, Ashland Composite Polymers.
