Gore Exhibiting New And Proven Fabrics, Cables And Materials For Military And Defense Applications
ELKTON, MD, APRIL 21, 2017 — W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) will be featuring products from GORE® Military Fabrics, GORE™ SKYFLEX™ Aerospace Materials and GORE® Cables and Materials at the 2017 Army Aviation Mission Solutions Summit in Nashville, TN, April, 26-28, Booth 1045.
Gore offers an extensive collection of high-performance technical solutions that incorporate the latest materials science — ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene) — to meet the military’s complex functional needs and rigorous industry requirements. Gore products have proven themselves in the toughest military conditions, dramatically reducing program risk and ensuring the success of any mission.
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.
Gore will also exhibit its portfolio of durable GORE® Cables and Materials engineered to perform reliably now and over time. Products that will be highlighted include small, lightweight high data rate cables; no-cure, sealing and surface protection GORE™ SKYFLEX™ Aerospace Materials; and excellent shielding materials.
Throughout the summit, Gore will conduct live demonstrations using the Cable Installation Simulator they developed to replicate the conditions an assembly experiences while being routed during installation in an aircraft. Gore specialists will route GORE-FLIGHT™ Microwave Assemblies through the simulator and evaluate performance using GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave/RF Test Assemblies. The live demo schedule (Booth 1045) is as follows:
- Wednesday, April 26, 5:00 PM
- Thursday and Friday, April 27-28, 1:00 PM
