Compact, All-Solid Gas Generators 720417

Gas generators for filling auto air cushions have been developed in several compact sizes and configurations. All-solid chemical-generating compositions have been developed to give nearly pure nitrogen gas. Other compositions developed give mainly carbon dioxide. Gas cushions ranging in size from 1-12 ft3 have been inflated. Deployment time, bag temperature, and sound level are within safe limits. Toxicity tests have been performed on dogs without harmful effects being observed.
