Gore will be exhibiting military apparel featuring fire-resistant (FR) innovations, including GORE® PYRAD® Fabric Technology – an advanced laminate that offers an optimal combination of thermal / flashover burn protection, environmental protection, and comfort. This unique technology self-extinguishes flames so that the fabric does not continue to burn. Also on display will be Gore’s Fire-Resistant Environmental Ensemble (FREE) line designed with a Nomex® outer layer, a durably waterproof, windproof, and breathable GORE-TEX® membrane, and a Nomex® liner. In addition, Gore will show its Intermediate Weather Outer Layer (IWOL) jacket, constructed from a MASSIF® fabric featuring GORE® FR Stretch technology in a revolutionary nylon-faced, flame resistant, water resistant laminate.
