It is hydrophobic (“water-fearing”), oleophobic (“oil-fearing”), and electrostatic-discharge-safe (preventing damage to electronic systems).
The oleophobic properties make Cocoon’s fabric washable.
Hydrophobic properties mean the fabric doesn’t get heavier when wet or frozen.
The electrostatic grid that's on Cocoon’s fabric is imprinted on the interface before it's laminated. That makes Cocoon electrically neutral, meaning there’s no static electricity generation or discharge.
Cocoon is inherently safe around fuel, electronics, and explosives. There's a small risk that users can initiate errors, but it's more likely operators will inert a weapon by burning out an electro-explosive device (EED) within the weapon.
