Our Elkem Silicones team is excited to see you once again at AIRBAG 2022 on November 28-30, 2022 in Mannheim, Germany. Stop at booth #20 to learn about our Silicone Coating & Seam Sealing for Airbag.

Elkem Silicones offers well adapted solutions to the current dynamic transformation of the automotive industry towards more efficient and sustainable mobility, ensuring the safety of all road users remains the highest priority overall. Within this field, information is the key enabler to innovation and cutting-edge technology to maintain and improve road safety.

For over 25 years, Elkem Silicones has partnered with customers to develop airbag-coating silicones. We draw upon this expertise to achieve optimal and durable silicone adhesion onto even the most difficult substrates, such as those made with polyamide and polyester yarns that can be washed or non-washed. Our track record of success has made us the silicone provider of choice for the world’s leading airbag manufacturers.

Discover what our Airbag product line can bring to your technical textile:

  • Fast cure, excellent adhesion on difficult substrates (ex. PET)
