Explore the high-level protective benefits of this technology application.
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 is lightweight and non-bulky, making it suitable for wearing on long, demanding missions.
GORE® PYRAD® garments are highly tear- and abrasion resistant, giving them a long garment life.
Many defence personnel face the risk of flash fires. GORE® PYRAD® fabric technology has been built with a laminate that forms a stable char when exposed to heat, flame and flash fires to reliably protect the wearer. So when defence personnel are exposed to these incidents, they can count on best-in-class protection from their GORE® PYRAD® garments.
Along with this high level of protection, the garments are also lightweight, low-bulk and easy to pack: perfect for those on the move. The fabric retains the high levels of durability that Gore protective fabrics are renowned for, standing up to the everyday pressures of tough working conditions.
Fabrics with camouflage patterns keep their colour stability for long and are very durable, due to their high tear and abrasion resistance.
When exposed to flash fires in the line of duty, GORE® PYRAD® garments provide crucial incidental heat and flame protection.
