W.L. Gore Associates

Chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial chemicals, and emerging pharmaceuticals such as fentanyl can create dangerous situations for first responders. For more than 35 years, W. L. Gore & Associates has pioneered fabrics that ensure exceptional protection without compromising your ability to get the job done. Gore develops products based on the concept of fitness for use, which means delivering an exceptional solution for the demands of a specific application. Whether developing a rugged suit for hot zone emergency response or a highly breathable protective suit for work in warm zone perimeter security, Gore collaborates with users to understand their environment, their challenges, and the hazards they face. Gore has combined this understanding with its extensive knowledge of membrane technology to engineer durable GORE® CHEMPAK® fabrics.

• Certified to NFPA 1994, Class 2, multi-threat suits made with GORE® CHEMPAK® ultra barrier fabric enable you to move more easily with an increased range of motion, improved peripheral vision, and excellent dexterity. This lightweight fabric allows you to remain engaged longer by promoting evaporative cooling when its outer layer is wet down.
The Extended Response Team (XRT) suit made with GORE® CHEMPAK® selectively permeable fabric is the only breathable garment that could meet the requirements of the NFPA 1994, Class 3 Standard for warm zone environments. The XRT suit allows you to remain on duty for up to 24 hours, and its durability gives added confidence about CBRN protection.
• GORE® CROSSTECH® fabric delivers protection against highly infectious diseases such as Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) in a one-piece, breathable Biological Protective Suit (BPS) that enables you to work with patients easier and stay with them longer without concern of contamination.
