50 Years of ePTFE
Commemorating a Milestone
On October 28, 1969 Bob Gore discovered ePTFE, a versatile fluoropolymer that transformed our Enterprise and continues to contribute value to society. Today, this material is traveling through outer space, healing hearts and protecting first responders.
Redefining Stroke Prevention
One Patient’s Story
Runner Kathryn Dunning has long relied on GORE-TEX Products to protect her from the elements. But she never guessed that Gore’s technology would also mend her heart. After suffering a stroke related to a common heart defect, Kathryn went through months of medical appointments to determine the best path forward. When a doctor showed her our minimally invasive solution, the decision became clear.
