Air permeability is the ability of a fabric to allow air to pass through it. For Icarex, it is 0,02 cc per cm² per second*, which is extremely low. This means that the fabric is incredibly airtight, a feature that is vital for the production of kites.

*The air permeability figure indicates the volume of air per surface unit in a certain amount of time. The value is measured at a pressure difference of 1 atmosphere given a certain thickness of the fabric.
