MSK2 is Kevlar-silicone foam composite. It offers excellent fire resistance, very low thermal conductivity, outstanding flame penetration resistance according to FAR/JAR 25.855(c), good mechanical properties, low weight, remarkable chemical resistance, low emission values, low smoke density. In addition to applications listed, it is used for flexible/durable joining elements and flame penetration resistant parts according to FAR/JAR 25.855(c) for aerospace and other industries.

MSK2 can be sewn to produce 3D parts. This is typically carried out with a stainless steel core/para-aramid thread to maintain the flame-retardancy of the assemblies.
