Specialist parachute PX-01 made of a special Tyvek material by DuPont.
Tyvek is a lightweight, eco-friendly, waterproof and durable material for many applications. It looks like crumpled paper, but it combines features of both paper and foil, plastic and textile. It is stronger than natural leather. How is this possible? Tyvek – these are polyethylene fibers bonded under the influence of temperature and pressure. They form a highly permeable membrane consisting of millions of fibers. Thanks to them, Tyvek “breathes” – it allows water vapor to pass through, but not liquid water. It is characterized by high dimensional stability, resistance to weather conditions (high temperature, UV radiation).
The PX-01 parachute we propose is a lightweight product, weighing 140-160 grams, perfectly suited for use in any stratospheric mission. Recommended for loads up to 1000 grams. Its diameter is 156 cm.
