Airbag Coatings

ELASTOSIL® silicone rubber is used for the coating of chest and head airbags as well as curtain airbags to improve and maintain their functional safety. WACKER has also developed innovative liquid silicone rubber grades that are of particular interest for new types of airbags. These silicone rubbers contribute to the straightforward production of the airbags as well as to keeping them inflated for an extended period, including if the vehicle overturns.
