Narrow fabrics that effectively address automotive safety and performance require precise combinations of fibers, weaving or knitting techniques and finishing processes. AEC Narrow Fabrics makes most of the seat belt webbing used in the United States and has earned the privilege of becoming the largest US manufacturer. Although safety is the primary purpose for our seat belt webbing, we also help automobile manufacturers make a design statement by coordinating webbing colors for car interiors.

With new advances in performance - based fibers AEC is also able to manufacture composite narrow fabrics with enhanced thermal, mechanical and/or electrical features. AEC's R&D experts often work with manufacturers to create the custom narrow fabrics they require for specific kinds of performance.
