Safety, performance and styling are all key elements in the design of automotive rear lamps and specialty (CHMSL or side marker) lamps. New designs must incorporate advanced venting solutions to effectively mitigate the damaging effects of environmental factors.
Venting products for rear lamps or specialty CHMSL lamps must reliably withstand rain, sleet, snow, dust, dirt and debris. And they must excel at managing lamp pressure differentials, to prevent water ingress, condensation and ultimately, lamp failures and recalls.
Gore provides proven venting solutions to meet these needs. Our Vents:
- provide effective moisture diffusion to solve new clear-lens condensation challenges
- manage pressure differentials and keep environmental contaminants from infiltrating lamp lenses and housings
- continue to vent regardless of whether the car is moving or parked
For over 20 years, Gore has partnered with global OEMs and Tier-1 lighting suppliers to advance rear lamp and specialty (CHMSL) lamp design and reliability. By relying on our expertise, suppliers are confident in their products’ integrity, no matter what conditions they face.
Gore offers qualified vents for rear and specialty lamp applications. We extensively test and evaluate each vent to ensure it performs consistently and reliably.
These are some of our most popular vents for rear and specialty lamp applications. Contact us to discuss your application and we’ll evaluate the requirements and match it to a standard or custom venting product.

With its new GORE® PolyVent Compact Series, W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. introduces higher-performance venting in a smaller footprint. About 30% smaller than the widely-used PolyVent Snap-Fit product family, the new Compact Series is easier to integrate into even the smallest automotive electronic housings. It provides a higher level of protection for sensitive components like sensors, motors and control units, while providing reliable and rapid pressure equalization.
Approximately 30 percent smaller than other GORE Snap-Fit Vents, the compact series provides a higher level of protection for extremely small electronic components, where space is at a premium.
W. L. Gore & Associates has expanded its line of GORE® Automotive Vents to include the new Series: AVS 41 (P/N VE2048) venting solution, which is engineered specifically for powertrain components. This new vent improves component reliability by equalizing pressure, preventing contamination from water, dust, dirt, and other automotive fluids and simplifying design challenges, ultimately resulting in lower overall costs.
