At just 7 mm and 10 mm (OD), AVS 118 and AVS 119 are small in size, but big on performance and life-of-vehicle reliability.

Increasingly, OEMS are differentiating their models through exterior accessory lighting: on side mirrors, for carpet or welcome lights, with illuminated brand logos or grilles, or integrated rear bumper lamps. 

These thinner, lighter lamp designs require more miniaturized components packed into tighter spaces or smaller modules, which can increase the need for effective venting.

Gore’s smallest-footprint adhesive vents AVS 118/119 are the right fit for reliable accessory lighting

Designed especially for the needs of today’s space-constrained accessory lighting, these vents come in the sizes you need and deliver the performance characteristics you want.

Life-of-vehicle protection for sensitive accessory lighting:

  • Robust protection against contaminants like automotive fluids, detergents, washing products, dirt and dust … even fine dust.
  • Reliable pressure equalization with fast recovery after water contact.
  • Effective protection from water ingress after splashes or sprays: our high roll-off membrane quickly sheds water, so vents will not saturate.
  • Designed for performance in operating temperatures from  -40 to +125 °C.

Easy to work with:

  • Installs quickly and easily using either automated or manual processes. 
  • Proven silicone adhesive assures a strong, durable bond to the housing surface.
