Acoustic Vents for Dust and Splash Protection
GORE® Acoustic Vents for dust and splash protection are made of a unique non-woven material that allows sound waves to pass directly through with minimal distortion and little interference. At the same time, the microstructure of this water-resistant material traps particles to deliver unmatched protection from dirt, dust and liquids in everyday environments. Because the microstructure of these vents also allows air to flow freely through them, they provide continuous pressure equalization, ensuring long-lasting performance of your device. These adhesive-backed vents are easy to incorporate into your device design and need minimal space.
- high-quality sound transmission from low acoustic resistance
- increased durability with excellent dust and metal particulate protection up to IP6x for indoor and outdoor applications
- improved reliability with consistent water- and liquid-resistant protection
- easy installation with thin, customized shapes
