Silicone Solutions for Airbags

Silicones are used in airbags because of their reliability over a vehicle's lifespan. Airbag coating silicones and airbag sealing silicones from Elkem Silicones are designed to deliver the best and most durable compatibility with nylon and polyester textile substrates.

Elkem Silicones offers silicones to coat textiles that form airbag cushions. The coating provides thermal protection against the inflator, enables controlled permeability and helps ensure mechanical integrity. We also offer silicones for airbag sealing as well as for heat shields and reinforcement patches.
