Advanced Solutions for Advanced Lighting Applications

Innovations in automotive lighting mean more compact, higher-value assemblies that often include sensors or electronics. These designs require higher levels of protection to maintain lamp clarity, performance and service life. Our vents offer you new solutions to protect and maintain lamp reliability for the life of the vehicle. 

These all-membrane adhesive vents can help advance the reliability and longevity of your lighting components by providing enhanced condensation reduction, pressure equalization and protection against entry of water, fine dust and dirt. These vents bond firmly and perform reliably under the most challenging environmental conditions.

NEW AVS 113: The next-generation AVS 100

The combination designed to enable faster clearing: our highest diffusive performance while maintaining a strong surface-bond to housing.



The industry-standard footprint with proven life-of-vehicle condensation reduction, ingress protection and pressure equalization.

AVS 100

AVS 100

Offers easy installation (target frame optional) and spray resistance plus condensation reduction, ingress protection and pressure equalization.

GORE Automotive Vents for Rear Lamps

AVS 600/601/602

Ideal for clear-lens rear lamps. Three sizes/two shapes with a larger diffusive area-per-footprint improve condensation reduction and design options: achieve higher Moisture Vapor Transmission Rates, a smaller footprint, or fewer total vents.

GORE Automotive Vents for Accessory Lamps
