August 03 2020

Teijin Aramid informed that with the successful launch of NASA’s Mars Perseverance Rover from Cape Canaveral in Florida, its Technora high-performance fiber is again enabling space exploration. The premium para-aramid Technora plays a critical role in the structure of the Rover’s landing parachute, developed by Airborne Systems and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which will be deployed during descent to Mars in February 2021. The parachute system has proven it can support an inflation load of 31,751 kg (almost 70,000 pounds). The challenging surface conditions on Mars include average temperatures of -63°C, frequent dust storms, and atmospheric electricity.
