An ignition element (106) for heating temperature sensitive ignitable material (86) in an air bag inflator comprises an electrically conductive first material layer (142). An electrically conductive second material layer (144) has a portion (146) spaced from and overlying a portion (148) of the first material layer (142). A lossy dielectric material (180) is disposed between the overlying portions (146, 148) of the first and second material layers (142, 144). A high frequency alternating electric field is applied to the first and second material layers (...
[ Having described the invention, the following is claimed:] [1.] An apparatus comprising:a body of pyrotechnic material;an initiator disposed adjacent to said body of pyrotechnic material, said initiator including a body of dielectric material; andcircuit means for applying a high frequency alternating electric field to said body of dielectric material to heat by dielectric heating said body of dielectric material to a temperature sufficient to effect ignition of said body of pyrotechnic material under the influence of heat transferred from said body of...
