GORE® Automotive Vents for Exterior Lighting

Automotive lighting vents from Gore block water, automotive fluids and contaminants while effectively reducing condensation and allowing lamps to vent during rapid temperature/pressure differentials. The end result of using GORE® Automotive Vents is to potentially extend the reliability and service life of automotive lamps.

Automotive lighting design requires distinctive styling, advanced lamp technologies and lasting durability to win consumer approval and sustain customer satisfaction, across global markets. Today’s high-performance headlamps, fog lamps, rear lamps or specialty (CHMSL) lamps use sophisticated technologies — from LED or Xenon, to dynamic bending lights and adaptive systems — that demand highly-engineered venting development to ensure lamp performance and lamp housing integrity.

Advanced automotive venting products from Gore improve the durability and warranty performance of automotive lighting, by:

  • Keeping lenses clear / preventing dust, dirt and debris infiltration
  • Reducing clear-lens condensation through effective diffusion/moisture transport out of the lamp
  • Protecting lamp housings and lenses / blocking ingress of water, heavy rains, car wash solutions and other automotive fluids

Gore has partnered with global OEMs and Tier-1 lighting suppliers for more than 15 years to advance automotive lamp design and reliability. Rely on our lamp venting expertise to protect the integrity of your next automotive lighting solution.
