INSQIN®-based coated textile helps solar car driver take control
The Sonnenwagen will endure harsh conditions, including high temperatures, dust and sand. To help the driver get a good handle on the solar car, the steering wheel requires a high-performing material. A mechanical foamed coated textile based on our INSQIN® technology takes control.
We approached Covestro as we needed a material for our steering wheel that has a good grip and is able to withstand harsh conditions in the cockpit.
The mechanical foamed coated textile based on INSQIN® technology provides the performance required to keep the driver in control of the car.
