A solid propellant gas generator contains a bed of agglomerated or beaded hydrated gelatin. The gelatin/water bed is oriented such that at least substantially filtered combustion products are humidified by the water vapor as the filtered combustion products pass over the bed. Relative thereto, a method of improving the release and inflation of an airbag of a vehicle occupant protection system is also described. Humidification of at least substantially filtered combustion products results in a reduced pressure requirement to open and inflate a stored airb...
We claim: 1. A method of improving inflation of an airbag comprising the steps of: igniting a gas generant composition within a gas generator to form combustion products; at least substantially filtering the combustion products to form filtered combustion products; humidifying the filtered combustion products to form humidified filtered combustion products without further filtration thereafter; and routing the humidified filtered combustion products into the airbag. 2. The method of claim 1 wherein said humidifying step comprises combining the filter...
