PHP Fibers to open new airbag weaving plant in Germany


PHP Fibers is to open a state-of-the-art airbag fabric weaving and finishing plant at its production site in Obernburg, near Aschaffenburg, Germany.

The new facility will be embedded into the polyamide high-tenacity spinning plant and is based on technology provided by Toyobo, which has airbag fabric weaving operations in Asia; the technology is currently used at PHP Fibers in the US.

The German weaving operation will have 47 water jet weaving machines and will use polyamide 6.6 yarn from its own spinning facility.
