Development of a Thermoplastic Composite Kneebolster 910405

A first surface thermoplastic composite knee bolster system has been developed by Chrysler Corporation for the Eagle Premier vehicle, resulting in a major breakthrough for occupant safety interior design. It provides significant weight and cost savings versus the multi-piece steel assembly it replaced. This new design, in conjunction with a motorized two (2) point seat belt system, meets all FMVSS 208 requirements for occupant protection and safety.
