Leaders in protective clothing
W.L. Gore & Associates (Gore), a global materials science company dedicated to transforming industries and improving lives, has selected us to tailor work and protective garments with GORE-TEX, GORE® WINDSTOPPER® and GORE® PYRAD® technologies.
Since 1958, Gore has solved many complextechnical challenges in demanding environments, from space missions to the world’s highest mountain peaks.
Gore revolutionized the outerwear industry with durable, breathable and windproof waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX fabric more than 40 years ago and still continues to be one of the leading innovators in performance and protective clothing.
Multi-risk protective clothing with the best technology
The Gore line of fabrics provides thecomfort and protection in harsh environments where professionals from multiple industries need them, such as firefighters, police, military and emergency services to operators in various industries, so they can perform their difficult work with confidence and safety.
The technological collaboration with GORE allows us to provide the working clothing market with multi-hazard protective clothing with the best technology in breathability, impermeability and protection against the wind.
The GORE-TEX membrane is made up of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene ePTFE. Its inherent characteristics make it hydrophobic (high surface tension) which makes it waterproof to liquids and therefore also to acids and chemical agents. In addition, it is thermally stable between -240ºC and 270ºC.
The microporosity of the ePTFE membrane is 20,000 times smaller than a water molecule, therefore it constitutes a perfect barrier for water drops. Also, there is the repellency treatment on the outer fabric.
The pores are 700 times larger than the steam produced by heat and humidity, which dissipates to the outside, thus preventing the accumulation of sweatand keeping the user dry all the time.
It is a windbreak membrane because the air is partially repelled by the microporous structure of the membrane.
GORE®️ PYRAD®️ Technology
GORE®️ PYRAD®️ product technology offers waterproof and self-extinguishing protection against Class 2 Electric Arc. Never protection has been so light. The high level of protection this technology provides us in protective clothing:
The GORE®️ PYRAD®️ fabric suits for all workers who need protection against class 2 electric arc and are looking for more comfortable, light and breathable garments.
The flame retardant fabric prevents the spread of flames by forming a charred layer that reduces heat transfer to the skin.
GORE®️ PYRAD®️ product technology solutions are up to 50% lighter than conventional flame retardant fabrics.
GORE® PYRAD® product technology is durably waterproof, windproof and breathable, allowing uninterrupted work even in the rain.
