GORE Low Pressure Evacuation Vents
Enabling lighter leaner battery packs in electric cars
The number of newly registered electric vehicles worldwide exceeded the two million mark in 2018. Powered by lithium-ion batteries, they offer a clean alternative to combustion engines. A new Gore vent reduces the weight and cost of next generation lithium-ion battery components and provides prompt relief of pressure build-up. It also protects against dust, dirt and water that could otherwise result in electrical issues and battery failure.
Gore Cables Made It to the Moon
One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind
Fifty years ago, Gore’s technology played a significant role in the historic Apollo 11 mission. Our wires and cables helped Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong Jr. and Michael Collins get to the moon, gather data aboard the lunar surface and navigate home safely.
