Dow Corning expert to discuss ways silicone facilitates airbag technology development

Dow Corning - EEI : 28 April, 2007  (Company News)
Today's airbag market is ready for innovation, yet has very stringent evaluation and development methodology requirements. In his presentation, Mr. Blackwood will discuss ways silicone can address, primarily from a coated and sealed fabric perspective, the need for innovative and timely approaches to the development of new airbag technologies. Appropriate evaluation methods for use throughout the implementation process, which includes application, manufacturing and deployment, will also be discussed.
Today's airbag market is ready for innovation, yet has very stringent evaluation and development methodology requirements. In his presentation, Mr. Blackwood will discuss ways silicone can address, primarily from a coated and sealed fabric perspective, the need for innovative and timely approaches to the development of new airbag technologies. Appropriate evaluation methods for use throughout the implementation process, which includes application, manufacturing and deployment, will also be discussed.

Mr. Blackwood will address considerations related to the use of one-piece woven versus coated flat fabric in the construction of inflatable side-curtain airbags, recent changes in weaving technology that impact silicone coat weight, and the 'art' of seam sealing.

The presentation will also include examples of how the silicone producer, airbag module maker and coated fabric supplier can work together to provide innovative solutions for airbag safety in a timely and consistent manner.
