QUALITY AND TESTING

With our commitment to quality, we back every fabric we make. We don't just say our products are durable, we prove it with rigorous lab and field testing. We require all of our fabrics to meet the specific requirements of their application, be comfortable to wear and last for the life of the product.

Gore advantage

For more than 40 years, we have been a pioneer in developing high-performance barrier fabrics that withstand the harsh environments encountered by military, law enforcement, fire, and rescue professionals.
We combine research in the fundamental science of fluoropolymers with a thorough understanding of the challenges you face to engineer durable, breathable, protective fabrics. We then test our fabrics so that they do what we say they will do.

PRODUCT TECHNOLOGIES

Promises about quality are one thing; proof is another. At Gore, we certify the quality of all products that carry our name — from understanding the conditions in which the product will be used and constructing the fabric through manufacturing and testing the final product.

YOUR NEEDS

When developing a protective barrier, we collaborate with your team to fully understand the environments in which you work, the challenges you experience, and the hazards you face. As a result of this collaborative approach, we continue to engineer premier barriers that exceed standards in providing the best breathable protection against the potential hazards that you may encounter.

FABRIC DEVELOPMENT

Gore collaborates with a worldwide network of suppliers for raw materials, yarns, and fabrics — all to ensure that we begin with the highest quality components possible. We have specifically engineered GORE-SEAM® tape and a patented seam-sealing process to ensure waterproof protection. We provide our partners with this technology and the necessary training to ensure that the end products deliver durable waterproof protection.

PARTNER SUPPORT

Only manufacturers that comply with our standards can become an official Gore partner. These certified manufacturers can rely on our ongoing support. In addition to advising and training their staff about our materials, machinery, and knowledge, we collaborate with them during new product development and production and assist in optimizing their processes.
