Chemical/Biological Protective Clothing System (CPCS)
Respond and stay protected with a versatile CB undergarment
Lightweight Breathable Comfort
The breathable performance of GORE® CHEMPAK® selectively permeable fabric helps minimize thermal impact by allowing perspiration vapor (sweat) to escape. The stretch construction of the close-fitting undergarment provides additional comfort by eliminating the thermal insulating layer that surrounds your body. When compared to traditional carbon suits, the CPCS improved heat loss by more than 20 percent.
Versatile Design Allowing For Easy Integration
The undergarment’s stretch fabric and unique design maximize its range of motion and comfortable fit, enabling increased mobility and operational effectiveness in traditional and catastrophic environments. Its versatile design enables the undergarment to be easily integrated with other equipment in a variety of ensembles for CBRN response missions such as:
- Technical search and rescue
- Special operations
- Tactical force protection operations
- CBRN identification and detection
- VIP security
- Counter-terrorism at public events
- Consequence management
- Technical decontamination
The CPCS made with stretch GORE® CHEMPAK® selectively permeable fabric allows professionals to operate discretely, while maintaining a ready posture in the event of a terrorist incident. With this new technology, federal, state, and local professionals can wear a garment that protects them without alarming the public.
The CPCS undergarment worn under a Nomex® flight suit meets the requirements of NFPA 1994, Class 3 Standard on Protective Ensembles for First Responders to CBRN Terrorism Incidents. This ensemble is ideal for operations that potentially include toxic industrial chemicals and chemical warfare agents below levels not immediately dangerous to life and health (IDLH) as identified in the NFPA standard.

The Gore Advantage
Having garments that withstand the conditions in which you work depends on the quality of the fabrics’ construction and the manufacturing process of the garment. For more than 35 years, W. L. Gore & Associates has been a pioneer in developing high-performance moisture barriers for fire, EMS, military, law enforcement, and homeland security applications. At Gore, we work closely with our gear manufacturers during initial gear design, rigorous laboratory and field testing, and final product performance — all to ensure that the fabric in your garments does what we say it will do.
WARNING: No products, including garments, footwear, and gloves, protect completely, even when new; their protective performance will decline with wear, tear, abrasion, and other damage associated with use.
