Airbag fabric must be able to withstand the immense pressure exerted when the gas generator is activated.
Fabric for frontal airbags
Frontal airbags for the driver and front passenger provide effective protection in the event of a head-on collision. Of all airbag types, the driver version has the greatest potential to prevent serious injury.

Flat woven fabrics are employed to make frontal (driver and passenger) airbags. These fabrics are silicone-coated to provide the desired air permeability and heat resistance. Typical coating weights are between 22 and 300 g/sqm. The flat wovens generally weigh between 150 and 260 g/sqm uncoated.
Airbag parts made of flat wovens are cut out in-house using state-of-the-art laser equipment tailored to our processes and requirements. The cut sets are then assembled by hand or on leading-edge CNC machines. In either case, our extremely versatile sewing facility and expertly trained employees guarantee our products meet the highest standard of quality.
