Ideal material for safety
Ultramid® is an ideal material for passenger-side air bag housings and pedals. With very high impact strength and rigidity, Ultramid and is also instrumental in the simulation of the mechanical strength by supplying the characteristic values of the material under highly dynamic load.
In particular, Ultramid® B3ZG8 contains 40 percent glass fibers and it has also been impact-modified. As a result, it is sufficiently elastic under cold conditions, but also rigid enough at high temperatures. This plastic is easier to process than magnesium and exhibits good flame-retardant behaviour.
