    Unique GORE® PYRAD® fabric technology is engineered to provide optimal protection against heat and flame by balancing flame resistance, thermal insulation and thermal stability.

    GORE® PYRAD® fabric technology offers lighter weight solutions compared to traditional flame retardant fabrics.

    Arc rated GORE® PYRAD® fabrics provide class 2 arc protection and are tested to IEC standards.

    Focus on the job with reliable heat protection from incidental flame

    GORE fabric improves thermal stability and thermal insulation by enabling garments to maintain mechanical integrity following exposure to heat and flame threats. 

    The self-extinguishing properties provide a new level of flame resistance for personal protective equipment demonstrating a low percentage of body burn.

    After exposure, the fabric will sustain a stable char that will not flake, or disintegrate, with minimal shrinkage. 

    GORE® PYRAD® is inherent to the fabric and is durable for the life of the product. It is not a flame retardant (FR) chemical treatment or coating, and does not wear off over time. 

    Extensive research and testing has been conducted to develop a portfolio of fabric innovations to deliver end-use specific functionalities and protection levels. 

    The technology can be universally designed with various textiles, such as nylons or polyesters, to provide FR performance while maintaining the desirable characteristics like abrasion resistance, lightweight, colorfastness and printability.
