Flexible yet strong
The wire is made from alloys that feature excellent anti-corrosive and thermal properties. It resists contact with highly corrosive agents. It also withstands thermal shocks caused by the deployment of the airbag. Woven into a mesh, the filter media can be easily shaped to match any configuration. This allows easy integration into different parts of the airbag system.
Bekaert mesh wire for airbag filters fulfills the following purposes:
- Filtration: avoids smoke and dust or fragmented particles in the airbag
- Cooling: cools down the hot gasses and smother the flame during combustion
- Managing airflows: distributes the air when the airbag goes off
- Seals and resists heat shock (the mesh does not melt due to high heat)
