# Polymer Type Key Properties Specific Space Application(s) Melting Point (oC)
 Thermal blankets used on spacecraft,
satellites, and various space instruments.
 Primary electrical insulation in aerospace
applications Remains stable across a wide
Excellent combination of electrical properties, range of temperatures, from
1 Kapton  Kapton-insulated electrical wiring has been
thermal conductivity and mechanical toughness
widely used in civil and military aircraft −269 to +400 °C
because it is lighter than other insulators
and has good insulating and temperature
characteristics.
Kevlar fiber is strong enough to survive the
extreme forces and temperature fluctuations of
space travel.
High strength, high modulus, toughness and
