In-Space Manufacturing of Astronaut Clothing

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

In-Space Manufacturing of Astronaut Clothing
We propose an in-space manufacturing solution to produce and recycle crew clothing. Due to the versatility of polyester materials, a detailed study will be conducted to evaluate recycling of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), flame retardants compatibility with existing ECLS systems, and of blends of PET with the inherently flame retardant polyimide 84 (P84). The final deliverable of this effort will be a design concept for a miniaturized clothing recycler. More »
