AOC Aliancys Congratulates Nuon Solar Team with South African Victory

November 19 2018

The Nuon Solar Team has again won the Sasol Solar Challenge, the race for solar cars organized in South Africa. With their solar car Nuna9S, the Dutch team managed twice to recover a large distance from its nearest competitor from Tokai University (Japan), and reconquered the first place at the end of the race. The lightweight vehicle is made with a Beyone styrene-free resin from AOC Aliancys.

The construction of the Nuna9s vehicle was done by the team at the Polymer Science Park in Zwolle, next to the AOC Aliancys R&D Center. AOC Aliancys supported the Nuon Solar Team with innovative composites application technology, and provided hands-on support in manufacturing. The construction is stiffer, stronger and lighter compared to previous Nuna versions, which means a faster, safer and more energy efficient car.

The Nuna9s was made with Beyone styrene-free resin systems used in combination with TeXtreme carbon fabrics (supplied by Oxeon). These sustainable Beyone resins feature close-to-zero smell and solvent emissions, and are environmentally preferred alternatives to conventional styrene-based resin systems. The result is a superb Nuna9s vehicle that combines light weight, great aerodynamics, and dimensional stability at elevated temperatures.
