    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.

    DURABLE RESISTANCE TO HAZARDOUS LIQUIDS AND BODY FLUIDS

    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.
