ESTEBAN SOLAR CAR
The Esteban project is a team of 50 students from Polytechnique Montréal University whose aim is to design and build a solar-powered car every 2 years. Gurit contributed Corecell M60 and M200 to the team’s conception of a highly aerodynamic, lightweight vehicle. The core supplied enabled them to design an aerodynamic carbon fiber envelope that was light, robust, and the desired shape. This weight savings was a major factor in Project Esteban securing first place at the Formula Sun Grand Prix Competition in 2022 and 2023.
Rafale ÉTS is a team of motivated engineering students that has developed a foiling Moth for the Sustainable Moth Challenge. The team chose Gurit Corecell™ M foam for the manufacture of the rudder and daggerboard components to achieve the manufacturing and operating performance required for submerged components.
The Centre de Development de Composites Du Quebec (CDCQ) in collaboration with the students of CEGEP Saint-Jerome were set the challenge to create a 3.8m long CT scan table for inspection of large parts, up to 70 cm in diameter and 450kg in weight. Guided by the CDCQ, the students chose Gurit Corecell™ for the structural core material to be used in the sandwich structure, due to its rigidity and unmatched dynamic strength.
