Parachute

Stern EWS produces fabrics for custom-designed parachute applications, mostly intended for outerspace use. Such fabrics require specialized manufacturing capabilities using any fiber conceivable. Permeability control is key, in addition to control of tensile strength and stretch characteristics.

Stern EWS is a specialist in weaving and finishing high strength-to-weight fabrics for applications where minimizing overall weight is critical. Stern EWS commonly weaves fabrics as light as ¼ oz/yd2 for aerospace and medical applications. The ability to weave and finish the lightest fibers while retaining maximum strength is very useful for aerospace designs.
