The highest strength to weight parachute fabrics


Visit us on Stand : B14

20-23 September

From the 1930s to the present day, Heathcoat fabrics has been at the cutting edge of parachute fabric design and manufacture, for global, military and aerospace applications.

Superior manufacturing technologies and techniques have led us to design, develop, and manufacture parachute fabrics for aircraft/race car deceleration, airborne troop deployment, weapons & load deployment combined with continuing in-depth involvement in developing specialist fabrics for NASA, Space-X and the ESA (European Space Agency).

Heathcoat Fabrics has a unique position in the marketplace in that we are the only parachute fabric manufacturer to design and specify our own exclusive yarns for this market. Heathcoat Advanced Yarns have enabled us to produce the highest strength to weight ratio parachute fabrics available in the market. Additional benefits for parachute manufacturers are that we can design the yarn to meet the requirements of the parachute, not limited by standard specifications. Unique to our HAY based fabrics are exceptional heat and UV resistance, producing higher performing fabrics with outstanding retained tensile strength.

John Stimpson, Business Manager, said:

“We are very excited about the level of interest that this emerging technology has generated within the non-military markets, hence our participation at the Coup Icare exhibition”.

Heathcoat fabrics market its extensive range of military and specialist parachute fabrics under the DecelAir™  brand and are a full member of PIA – Parachute Industry Association.
