Make Toyota model will be equipped with pipes made of innovative material
In may 2016, the company Toyota will become the world’s first manufacturer to use production engine nozzles of innovative environmentally friendly synthetic rubber.
Developed by Toyota based on vegetable raw materials innovative material called “biohydran”. Toyota plans to use the new rubber for the biosynthetic production of pipes and engine components hydraulic system transmission production cars.
The creation of a “Bioperine” is the result of a joint project of Toyota Zeon Corporation and Sumitomo Riko Co., Ltd. The use of a new material based on biological raw materials allows to reduce 20% associated with car production CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. The properties of the “Bioperine” absolutely the same properties of caoutchouc produced by petroleum-based, from the point of view of quality and mass production possibilities. The developers received Toyota biosynthetic rubber ensures a higher durability of the pipes and hoses due to the high resistance to diffusion and resistance to heat. This is a significant achievement casts doubt on the traditional technology of production of pipes from epichlorhydrine rubber.
Outstanding features of the new product open up broad prospects for the use of the pipes from the “Bioperine” in the serial design of the cars. In the future, Toyota plans to expand the use of innovative material to produce other elastic components exposed in operating a high loads, such as brake hoses and hoses of the fuel lines.
Toyota plans to first use the connections of new material in vacuum systems drive production car in may of this year. Further connections from the “Bioperine” will appear in the engines of all new Toyota cars produced in Japan.
Practical use of new biosynthetic rubber to mass-produced cars was an important step towards the implementation of the environmental initiatives of Toyota, released in October 2015. These initiatives, generally referred to as the Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050, represent a comprehensive plan for global solutions to environmental problems by 2050.
In the future, Toyota plans to continue work on establishment and application in production vehicles innovative technologies to expand the range of components created from environmentally friendly materials.
