Air bag fiber
Strong fiber for sudden situations.
INVISTA’s commitment to science, safety and quality positions it as a leader in the air bag industry—where lives may depend on superior knowledge and materials. INVISTA’s integrated supply chain, from petrochemicals to the manufacturing of nylon 6,6 fiber, allow it to produce advanced technical yarns across the globe.
Air bags require high performance materials designed to absorb impulsive loads, withstand high mechanical stresses and operate at elevated temperatures. Only high tenacity nylon 6,6 is engineered to reliably withstand exposure to these demanding environments. As countries around the world increase automotive production and develop ever more stringent safety standards, INVISTA is quickly expanding its manufacturing capacity to meet customers’ needs.
