This Silk-iene™ is a very fine, extremely lightweight, extremely flexible 30 denier nylon Ripstop fabric, inflatable and kite fabric that is double coated with silicone (one coat of silicone on each side of the material). Weighs only 1.3 ounces per square yard. The saturation coating of silicone gives this material a "Zero Porosity" attribute (no air passes through). The white is used as photographic ripstop fabric for lighting diffusers to diffuse light, speeding the light from the camera flash for a better photo; helping to eliminate harsh shadows from bright lights or overpowered flash units.
The heavy coating of silicone also provides this material with superior shape and color retention for years of occasional outdoor use. This is the "Real" commercial grade material it is the exact material used in "sky dancer" type inflatable promotion figures. This material is also used for parasails and parachutes, and will make extremely lightweight and durable kites. Other uses for this material include light weight backpacks, tents, hammocks, and tarps. Available in 16 high intensity colors. This Material is not approved by the FAA for aviation use.
