Overview

Thin, lightweight, durable Gore membranes provide the keys to the performance of Gore fabrics. Gore combines these very uniform barriers with contamination-resistant coatings. The resulting composites may be tailored to achieve varying degrees of windproofness, resistance to penetration by liquids, and moisture vapor permeability or “breathability.”


GORE-TEX Fabrics

Gore fabric technologies have revolutionised the performance of fabrics by controlling porosity through unique microstructures. Membrane technologies and advanced polymers and materials have been developed to meet specific performance criteria for outdoor activities as well as occupational and industrial uses.

Gore complements its expertise in membrane technology with in-depth knowledge of fabric performance and polymer technology. Ongoing field and laboratory tests -- combined with the development of advanced adhesives, coatings, fabric finishes and seam-sealing materials -- ensure durable, high-performance garments and footwear.

In outerwear, unprecedented end-user warranty and manufacturers' licensing programmes for products made with GORE-TEX fabric have set the standard for durably liquidproof, breathable garments, footwear, and accessories available.

GORE-TEX® Fabrics offer exceptional strength, abrasion resistance and toughness as compared to other synthetic fibres, including other PTFE fibres.

They are ideal for a wide variety of applications and industries, including the following:

  • protective outerwear

  • military, safety, and protective services gear

  • aerospace

  • electronic

  • geotextiles

  • marine

  • transportation applications

  • frictional bearing surfaces

  • industrial equipment covers

  • transition pieces for bulk powder handling

  • wire harnesses

  • electrical cable insulation and/or spacing


GORE® Cover For Organic Waste Treatment

Efficiency

GORE® Cover, the fully integrated composting solution for the treatment of organic waste. Recognised as the leader for in-vessel composting worldwide, GORE® Cover is cost efficient to install and operate while providing optimised process control for producing consistent high quality compost and effectively controlling odours and emissions.

Flexibility

The unique design flexibility of GORE® Cover means that it is capable of processing a variety of input materials be it green waste, food waste, source separated organics, biosolids or MSW and for input volumes from as little as 2,000 tons to greater than 200,000 tons per year.

Approved

GORE® Cover is approved and proven in more that 150 composting plants in more than 20 countries. GORE® Cover meets the strictest of regulatory requirements worldwide. Facilities using GORE® Cover are fully comparable with established technologies – without the need for expensive buildings and bio-filtering installations.

Workwear & Industrial Fabrics

It is tough to work in changing weather, and with dangerous conditions like liquid chemicals, flammable substances, heat, fire, and electric arc. Of course, there is protective workwear available – but traditionally that gear is heavy, bulky, absorbs liquids and is often too warm to wear during strenuous work. Workwear with Gore fabrics provides maximum comfort combined with the highest protection level.


Defense Fabrics

Armed forces often come across extreme environments and unpredictable situations: high or low temperatures, wet windy weather, flash fire, sand and dust, hazardous chemicals or undesirable liquids. Their personal protective equipment (PPE) has to offer versatile mission-critical protection from head to toe, which is why military gear, boots and gloves are designed to keep them safe in the toughest conditions.n.


Fire & Safety Fabrics

Fire Fighters and Rescue Teams face different protection challenges, including open flames, contaminated particulates, chemicals, and body fluids, while trying to manage an optimum body core temperature in their protective gear. This is why Gore continues to expand their family of innovative, breathable barriers that exceed global performance standards.


Law Enforcement Fabrics

Patrol officers, SWAT teams and CBRN responders require personal protective equipment that keeps them comfortable and agile in versatile conditions and situations. Whether they encounter intense weather, harmful toxins or undesirable liquids, their personal protective equipment (PPE) needs to offer protection and comfort without restricting freedom of movement.
