Attacking Condensation at its Core
Driving in humid weather can quickly fog car windows. While vehicle defrosters provide a quick fix for windshields, condensation in closed housings like headlamps is harder to manage. A new Gore technology removes moisture in an active way. The Condensation Management Device, in cooperation with AML Systems, now has been recognized as a 2020 Automotive News PACE Awards finalist.

Have you ever dropped your new phone and cracked the screen? It’s never a good feeling to lose something of value. Now imagine if that something was worth thousands to millions of pounds and had the potential to change lives. That’s what drug manufacturers stand to lose if a single-use bulk drug storage bag — holding biologic substances — is damaged. A new solution from Gore addresses this issue.
Your work at Gore can change lives. Perhaps your own.
