Demron(TM) Deemed ‘A Choice Material for the Mars Spacesuit’ PR Newswire

Demron(TM), the world’s first anti-radiation fabric, was chosen as a key material for the creation of the Mars Spacesuit. In an article entitled “Material Choices for Mars” in The Journal of Materials Engineering and Performance, authors Marcy, Shalanski, Yarmuch, and Patchett listed Demron(TM) as a choice material for the future thermo-mechanical spacesuit that could be used by astronauts during a voyage to Mars. Because the planned spacesuit needs to be lightweight, flexible, and provide superior radiation protection, Demron(TM) was selected.
