Generally , they have to be light and strong materials .

In airships , aluminum is used because it's light, strong and resistant to corrosion.

In air balloons , i think strong rubber made of a material with a high melting point so that it doesn't melt at high temperatures inside the balloon is used, as well as fabric ouside.
