Measurement Results Summary
Kyoraku conducted fuel consumption measurement under the conditions of JC08 Mode in an air conditioned light (under 660 cylinder capacity) vehicle. Compared to existing conventional PE (polyethylene) instrument panel duct of 0.8mm thickness, it was proven that, with Kyoraku PP (polypropylene) foamed duct of 2.5mm thickness, the mileage per liter is 180m better with a 2.8 times expansion ratio foamed duct and 255m better with a 4.8 times expansion ratio foamed duct.
Although there have been needs of foamed duct for automotive air conditioning for the purpose of weight saving, this actual proof of fuel consumption effect is expected to enhance further appeal. In addition, if the fuel efficiency figures are applied to weight savings of a vehicle, they are equivalent to reduction of 15kg or more.
More information on the test results will be released at K2016 (International Plastic and Rubber Industry Exhibition) in Germany scheduled October, 2016.
In order to expand its foamed duct technology, Kyoraku is searching for potential partners worldwide that are interested in utilizing the technology through licensing.
