Explore the high-level protective benefits of this technology application.
A liquid-proof technology engineered to provide penetration resistance to virus and bacteria found in blood and body fluids
Garments with GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® laminates are durably waterproof as well as resistant to chemicals commonly found at accident scenes, floods and other environments.
Crucial for emergencies, GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® laminates are highly breathable, enabling perspiration to escape, which helps responders manage heat stress better.
Lightweight and flexible, GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® garments allow wearers to move quickly and with agility to various rescue situations.
GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® laminates are durable - resisting flexing and abrasions.
When combined with a flame-resistant outer material, garments with GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® moisture barriers are ideal for protecting Technical Rescue workers from flash fire and incidental flame exposure.
The preferred choice for emergency medical services and first responders, lightweight garments with GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® laminates provide optimal protection against viruses and bacteria in blood and body fluids as well as common chemicals found at accident scenes.
GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® fabric was engineered specifically to offer durable resistance to penetration from pathogens in blood (including blood infected with HIV, hepatitis B and C), body fluids, and commonly occurring chemicals. It is highly abrasion-resistant for physically demanding environments. Garments made with GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® fabric allow perspiration to escape and keep the wearer more comfortable, and able to focus on their response.
For essential head-to-toe personal protective equipment, garments with GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® laminates set the industry standard.
Technical Rescue Responders
Garments with GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® laminates protect first responders from pathogens found in blood and body fluids, commonly occurring chemicals and, when combined with a flame retardant outer material, flash fire and incidental flame contact.
Emergency Medical Professionals
Protection from exposure to blood-borne pathogens, garments with GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® products allow medical professionals to focus on the job.
GORE-TEX CROSSTECH® moisture barriers are tested in accordance with ISO 16604/ASTM F 1671, procedure C, SOP-12-013. Waterproofness: garments far exceed the requirements of EN343; ISO 14369 (rain tower) or garment norms EN469, ISO 14116, ISO 116212
