ELKTON, MD. (September 21, 2016) – W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) announces the successful integration of GORE Aerospace Ethernet Cables into upcoming F-16 upgrade initiatives. Gore’s new 10-gigabit cables, exceed Cat6a electrical requirements by delivering reliable signal integrity with sufficient margin for high-speed data transmission over longer distances.
Thin, lightweight, durable Gore membranes provide the keys to the performance of Gore fabrics. Gore combines these very uniform barriers with contamination-resistant coatings. The resulting composites may be tailored to achieve varying degrees of windproofness, resistance to penetration by liquids, and moisture vapor permeability or “breathability.”
Gore fabric technologies have revolutionized the performance of fabrics by controlling porosity through unique microstructures. Membrane technologies and advanced polymers and materials have been developed to meet specific performance criteria for outdoor activities as well as occupational and industrial uses.
Gore complements its expertise in membrane technology with in-depth knowledge of fabric performance and polymer technology. Ongoing field and laboratory tests -- combined with the development of advanced adhesives, coatings, fabric finishes and seam-sealing materials -- ensure durable, high-performance garments and footwear.
In outerwear, unprecedented end-user warranty and manufacturers' licensing programs for products made with GORE-TEX® fabric have set the standard for durably liquidproof, breathable garments, footwear, and accessories available.
GORE-TEX® Fabrics offer exceptional strength, abrasion resistance and toughness as compared to other synthetic fibers, including other PTFE fibers.
They are ideal for a wide variety of applications and industries, including the following:
military, safety, and protective services gear
frictional bearing surfaces
industrial equipment covers
transition pieces for bulk powder handling
electrical cable insulation and/or spacing

Fire & Safety Service Fabrics
For more than 30 years, we have pioneered high-performance fabrics for firefighters and first responders. Because fire departments have different needs, our line of breathable moisture barriers spans the range of durability while protecting against exposure to blood, body fluids, NFPA common chemicals, and water. As the latest advancement in the fire industry, CROSSTECH® black moisture barrier delivers enhanced durability and protection. CROSSTECH® 3-layer moisture barrier is the most rugged barrier in today’s market – providing exceptional protection against abrasion and wear without compromising liquid protection. GORE® RT7100 moisture barrier offers a superior combination of performance and value – an excellent choice for budgetary challenges.
If you are responding to potentially hazardous chemical emergencies, NFPA-certified suits made with GORE® CHEMPAK® fabrics deliver added confidence. As demonstrated in a field trial, the suit and its seams remained intact during physically demanding activities. These lightweight, flexible fabrics also increase comfort and help reduce heat stress so you can stay focused and engaged in the mission longer.
CROSSTECH® fabric is available for head-to-toe protection, comfort, and performance. It is the fabric of choice for use in NFPA-compliant gear including turnout gear. Its performance and durability combinations are unmatched in the industry for fabrics providing protection against blood and body fluids.
Whatever you’re up against, Gore has you covered with the most innovative barrier solutions.
