From Space-Grade to First Aid

Space Blanket

A low-weight, low-bulk blanket made of heat-reflective thin plastic sheeting.


Developed by NASA and the A&D industry in 1964 for use on the exterior surfaces of spacecraft.


Commonly found in first aid kits and camping equipment, space blankets reflect 97% of the body heat that would otherwise escape through thermal radiation, water evaporation, or convection.
