GORE® PYRAD® Products

Enhanced heat and flame protection using non-FR textiles

GORE® PYRAD® Flame Retardant is an innovative, self-extinguishing fabric technology that adds heat and flame protection properties to non-flame retardant (FR) textiles. When laminated to nylon, polyester, and other fabrics, GORE® PYRAD® Flame Retardant provides excellent protection against heat and fire by balancing flame resistance, thermal insulation, and thermal stability.

The use of traditional non-FR textiles allows garments to leverage key attributes of the non-FR textile, such as low water pick-up, abrasion resistance, and production of FR high-visibility fabrics. Without GORE® PYRAD® Flame Retardant technology, traditional non-FR textiles continue to propagate flame, exhibit melting and dripping, and increase the potential of burn injury.

GORE® PYRAD® Flame Retardant technology increases thermal protective performance and reduces potential for burn injury. It also offers an improvement in thermal stability by maintaining physical integrity after exposure.

Utilities

When you need to focus on restoring customer service, you need rainwear that protects you and enables you to work for longer periods without being distracted by challenging weather conditions. Rainwear made with GORE-TEX® PYRAD® fabric provides the best combination of broad protection, comfort, and durability for arc-flash rated, foul-weather protection.

Chemical Splash

When working around corrosive liquid chemicals, you need to be protected in case splash occurs. At the same time, you need to be able to move around easily and remain comfortable so as not to sacrifice your productivity. Garments made with GORE® chemical splash fabric provide a combination of liquid splash protection and breathable comfort not available with traditional vinyl or rubber suits.
