Every day the Albright team works on interesting silicone applications that are used in almost every industry. Albright recently provided tooling and silicone molding services for silicone septums incorporated into the food bags used by astronauts at the International Space Station (ISS). The food bags contain all different kinds of dry food, which becomes edible once water is added. Every astronaut must draw the food from the bag through, through the silicone septum, into their mouth. Almost every meal and drink consumed on the International Space Station (ISS) is pulled through a silicone septum manufactured at Albright. It’s an honor for the Albright team to assist in man’s endeavor to explore space.

To learn more about how the food bags are used by astronauts in outer space, check out Google’s “How do you live in space” video, below.
