Nonazide gas generating compositions are formed from a nonazide fuel, an oxidizer, a slag former, and a built-in catalyst comprising an alkali metal, alkaline earth metal, or transition metal salt of tetrazoles, bitetrazoles, and triazoles, or a transition metal oxide. The built-in catalyst promotes the conversion of nitrogen oxides (NOx) and carbon monoxide to nitrogen gas (N2) and carbon dioxide, respectively. The gas generants are therefore nontoxic and useful for inflating a vehicle occupant restraint system.
A four-component nonazide gas generating composition that forms gases upon combustion useful for inflating a vehicle occupant safety restraint device comprising at least one material of each of the following functional groups of materials: a. a fuel; b. an oxidizer compound; c. a slag forming compound; and d. a catalyst which promotes the conversion of toxic oxides of nitrogen and carbon monoxide to nitrogen gas (N2) and carbon dioxide, respectively, wherein the fuel comprises 5-aminotetrazole which is present in a concentration of about 26% to about 32%...
