CCC: Safety Belts for Motor Vehicle6. October 2016
Safety belts are given the same high priority in China as they are in Europe or the US. The understanding of what constitutes a seatbelt, the requirements that are placed on it, and how to verify those are also similar to the European standards. In general, four different types are distinguished in the GB standard 14166-2013; The lap belt, oblique shoulder strap, three-point belt and the harness strap. According to GB standard, a safety belt is defined as follows:
“An arrangement of straps with a securing buckle, adjusting devices and attachments which is capable of being anchored to the interior of a power-driven vehicle and is designed to diminish the risk of injury to its wearer, in the event of collision […]“
With regard to China CCC certification, the flammability of the belt itself and the safety of the belt retractor, play an important role. While the flammability is tested according to GB 8410-2006 as for other interior components, GB 14166-2013 is decisive for testing the remaining components. It includes the following aspects:
• Corrosion test
• Micro-slip test
• Conditioning of the strap (behavior under impact of Humidity, temperature, UV light, abrasion)
• Tensile strength
• Numerous static tests on the strap and the assembly
• Buckle-opening tests
Furthermore, the correct materials must be used. For example, the use of PA6 is generally prohibited.
