Air Bag Deployed

Dexmet precision expanded metals & expanded plastics are used in a host of primary, secondary and aftermarket automotive products. Typical applications include: low-cost bearings; air bags; air filters, oil filters; passenger and other filtration. Dexmet bronze mesh is used as a lubricating material and support structure in bearings primarily for automotive applications. In addition, these expanded metals and expanded plastics are ideal for automotive speaker grills & covers, light covers, protective light mesh and decorative applications. Automotive engineers continue to adapt Dexmet expanded metals and expanded plastics in innovative ways.

Dexmet expanded metals and foils are the materials of choice in airbag filters. As compared to the typical extruded material or woven material, Dexmet expanded metal save money by eliminating waste AND will not unravel. Dexmet expanded metals and foils are available in a wider range of widths, thicknesses, and open area configurations than any other material type. This combined with the ability to perform custom slitting and edge treatments makes Dexmet the premier supplier for airbag filter materials. Please consult with our sales and engineering professionals for specific materials characteristics in regards to your bushing application.
