GORE® CHEMPAK® ULTRA BARRIER FABRIC 

This fabric provides a high level of protection against a broad range of industrial chemicals, and chemical and biological agents. Penetration protection is offered against liquids, vapors and aerosols. The fabrics can maintain integrity even after exposure to petroleum, oils, lubricants, and other liquid contaminants. 
 
Additional benefits: Fabric provides certified protection to both NFPA 1992 and NFPA 1994, Classes 1, 2 and 2R for hot-zone operations. Covered under patent #US7730557, suits made with this fabric can be completely wet down to help draw heat out of the garment through conductive heat loss, helping responders to manage their body core temperature better. 
 
Ideal for: Hazmat responders, emergency services, law enforcement officers or defense personnel, requiring a high level of protection from harmful chemical and biological agents. 

GORE® CHEMPAK® SELECTIVELY PERMEABLE FABRIC 

This breathable selectively permeable fabric provides high levels of protection while simultaneously providing the wearer with low physiological stress.  

Additional benefits: Products made with GORE® CHEMPAK® selectively permeable fabric are certified to NFPA 1994, Classes 3/3R, and 4/4R and NFPA 1992 Standards for outstanding protection in warm zone operations. This lightweight protective fabric is also breathable, so perspiration vapor can escape effectively, reducing heat stress. 

Ideal for: Defense personnel, emergency services or law enforcement officers in strenuous, fast-paced operations that are below IDLH (immediately dangerous to life and health).
