Applying Functional Coatings for Industry since 1975.

Seat Belt Coating and Safety

In this case, Coating Systems was approached by a first-tier automotive manufacturer with the job to develop a coating for their seat belts. Because we know how important seat belts are for automotive safety, potentially saving lives in auto accidents, we took the job very seriously. The auto manufacturer needed a better product than what they were using, and Coating Systems had the solution. The manufacturer needed something set up for mass production, and they needed the process to be done onsite. Coating systems had the production line functional within six weeks, and that production line churned out 400,000lbs of material every month for a whole year. For the job, Coating Systems used a cold rolled steel that had been baked in a 42-ton brick furnace. The additional process of cold rolling after the heat treatment allowed a sleeker finish and greater strength under tension, yielding a stronger seat belt overall.
