Covestro announced on Monday their support for the Sonnenwagen (German for “sun car”) project as both a material and technical service provider and Gold Sponsor. Team Sonnenwagen are an association of enthusiastic students, from RWTH Aachen University in Germany, who are developing a solar-powered electric car, to take part in one of the toughest solar car races in the world, the World Solar Challenge 2017 from October 8 to 15 in Australia.
Covestro is also using the chance to road test their recent innovation, a bio-based hardener for automotive coatings, collaborating with PPG to produce the three-layer polyurethane coating.
