New GORE® Adhesive Vent AVS 110


Smaller size, proven durability, predictable airflow. For small under-hood electronic enclosures.

As electronic motors, sensors, actuators and control units become more sophisticated and high-value, their enclosures are becoming smaller and more densely configured. Gore offers an innovative solution for these under-hood and under-chassis electronic enclosures, with its new smaller-footprint, low-profile, all-membrane GORE Adhesive Vent AVS 110.

New GORE® Adhesive Vent AVS 110

Designed for automated outside mounting, GORE® Adhesive Vent AVS 110 has a high-burst-strength silicone adhesive that reliably adheres to metal and plastic housings.

NEW GORE Adhesive Vent AVS 110 delivers innovative performance benefits in a smaller package!

  • Smaller footprint: At just 5 mm diameter, this lowprofile, 100% ePTFE all-membrane vent is the perfect fit for your ongoing miniaturization of control units, sensors, actuators and motors.
  • Proven reliability: AVS 110 is ideal for challenging under-hood and under-chassis environments, because its hydrophobic and oleophobic GORE™ Membrane provides proven protection against road hazards like splashes or immersions and automotive fluids.
  • A better balance of attributes: Higher WEP Resistance? Higher Airflow? No need to choose – AVS 110 delivers both. And it maintains this optimally balanced combination, even at this very small size.
  • Defined upper-and-lower-airflow specs: With TRULY predictable airflow specs, AVS 110 lets you do 100% in-line testing of assembled units, to enhance productivity, quality control and reliability in the field.

All-membrane construction, for high airflow and reliable ingress protection.

GORE Adhesive Vent AVS 110 uses a proprietary GORE™ Membrane construction of 100% ePTFE.  This membrane enables high airflow at a very small size. At the same time, its high roll-off characteristics reliably guard against leaks.
