An air bag inflator for the passenger side of an automobile includes an elongated, tubular housing having a plurality of perforations in its cylindrical wall for discharging gas. Within the housing are a gas generant composition, an igniter and filtering screens.

The foil, in addition to serving as a hermetic seal for protecting the gas generant and igniter from moisture and dust, in...
1. In a method for inflating an air bag comprising, igniting combustible gas generant material in a sealed housing having walls that rupture when the pressure of the generated gas, in the rise thereof to a peak value, reaches a certain threshold value that is lower than the peak value, filtering the generated gas, and discharging the filtered gas to the air bag to be inflated, the generation of gas within the housing being characterized in that the rise in pressure to the peak value tends to be attained more slowly when the ambient temperature is l...
