Aerodyne launches new fabric to develop parachute system
Aug '12
Aerodyne Research Manufacturing Pty Ltd created a new fabric called ZPX to develop parachute system. ZPX is stronger; lighter; thinner; with reduced pack volume compared with traditional parachute nylon ripstop zero porosity (or zero air permeability / airflow fabric ) and which significantly reduces the effects of damage to the fabric.

In addition, ZPX has the key safety benefit of practically self sealing properties should the parachute fabric be damaged during use.

Aerodyne Research is a designer and manufacturer of parachutes participating in the worldwide parachute industry with the manufacture and supply of both military and sport parachutes.

Aerodyne Research has manufacturing and distribution facilities in South Africa, Indonesia and Florida, USA. Aerodyne has been in operation for 21 years and has built up substantial experience as well as a firm international customer base.

The majority of Aerodyne's production is exported worldwide to approximately 35 nations.
