Fibers & Fabrics

DuPont fibers and fabrics for aerospace and spacecraft help deliver durability, fuel economy/lightweighting, stiffness, and thermal/fire resistance. The performance characteristics of our materials can also help increase fuel efficiency and decrease operating and maintenance costs.

Kevlar® fiber has proven that it is strong enough to survive the extreme forces and temperature fluctuations of space travel. When the Mars Pathfinder landed on the surface of Mars, Kevlar® fiber reinforced the inflatable landing cushions – and the ropes that secured them – helping the Pathfinder to complete its 40-million-mile journey fully intact and ready to explore the planet’s surface. Kevlar® is used in communications satellites and also in the space shuttle to help protect against impact from orbital debris.
