Gore-Tex fabric is engineered to give penetration resistance against water, NFPA 1971 common fire ground chemicals and AS 4967/AS 2161.6 listed chemicals. To give uniform resistance to contaminants and greater overall liquid protection, all Gore-Tex® barriers are factory seam-sealed by Gore.
NFPA 1971 defined "common chemicals": Battery acid (37% sulphuric), Gasoline (ASTM Ref. Fuel C), Hydraulic fluid (phosphate-ester), Aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF), Swimming pool chlorine solution (65% free CI). AS 4967/AS 2161.6 Chemicals tested in accordance with ISO 13994:1998 Procedure CI:40% sodium hydroxide; 36% hydrochloric acid; 37% sulphuric acid; 50% toluene and 50% iso-octane (V/V).
For penetration resistance against blood and body fluids, in addition to water and the NFPA and AS chemicals listed above, a Crosstech® barrier is required. Crosstech® fabric has been specifically designed to pass liquid penetration-resistant challenges after more than two times the NFPA-required preconditioning cycles.
Gore does not claim that Gore-Tex® fabric will pass NFPA requirements for pathogen resistance. Both Crosstech® and Gore-Tex® glove inserts are heat and flame-resistant.
When tested, these textiles and Gore's intimate bi-component barrier technology create a thermally stable moisture barrier that will not melt, separate, ignite or degrade after high heat exposure.
Gore's moisture barriers also exhibited high hot and cold flex-to-leakage resistance, high UV degradation resistance, and high abrasion resistance. These barriers have been field-proven to provide durable waterproof protection after use and extended laundering.
