Fasten your seat belt: Oerlikon Barmag’s solutions for high tenacity yarns
No seat belt without technical quality yarn. Seat belts play a crucial role in protecting vehicle occupants and reduce the risk of injury and death. Their production from polyester yarn with up to 100 high strength individual filaments is highly demanding – after all, it is all about human lives. Oerlikon Barmag has developed a system concept with a unique, patented technology for this type of high strength safety yarn.
