Gore comes to Techtextil with innovative concepts

May '09
Techtextil (Frankfurt/Main (Germany) June 16-18, 2009) is the leading international trade fair for technical textiles and nonwovens. The complete global market of technical textiles will be showcased at the most important forum for the industry.

Visit us at our booth in hall 3.1, stand B 31 and discover new materials and innovative concepts.

Gore will present the following:

GORE Tenara Architectural Fabric
Made from a unique all fluoropolymer construction, it combines flexibility with complete immunity to UV sunlight, and exceptional textile aesthetic qualities. These aesthetics include high light transmission, availability of custom colors and an exceptional textile look and 'hand', unlike any other architectural fabric available on the market.

GORE Tenara Sewing Thread
Resistant to UV sunlight, chemicals, saltwater, extreme weather, and acid rain, ideal for outdoor applications.

GORE Rastex Sewing Thread
Made from 100 percent expanded PTFE and engineered specifically for the demands of filtration applications, withstands exposure to chemicals, high temperatures, abrasives, and moist environments.

GORE OMNIBEND Fiber for High Performance Ropes
Can drastically increase the service life of synthetic ropes used in high-tension bending applications.

GORE Fibers for Fine Diameter Fabrics
Technical textiles are demanding finer and finer monofilament fibers. To date, the available sizes of PTFE fibers has limited their use in precision filtration and woven reinforcement applications. Gore offers the worlds finest diameter ePTFE monofilaments, down to 45 microns. These can be used to create the thinnest, chemically resistant woven reinforcements and precision rated monofilament fabrics. Gore ePTFE fibers are available in both flat and round form. For applications that demand even greater diameter and ovality control, contact Gore for more information about our custom True Monofilament fibers.

GORE Fibers for Dimensionally Stable Fabrics
Specially treated 100% PTFE fibers have been developed by Gore to create fabrics with dramatically improved dimensional stability, unnatainable with any other fluoropolymer fiber. A wide range of applications will benefit from this technology; from reinforcing scrims to precision woven open meshes and absolute rated filtration fabrics. Stabilized fabrics can be designed with greater open area, more consistent spacing, and are easy to handle, cut and fabricate.

GORE Fibers for Flame-Resistant Fabrics
Gore is developing staple and continuous filament fibers that are uniquely compatible with other fibers and yarns, to produce new and interesting FR fabrics. The addition of Gore fibers can result in improvements in drape, hand, moisture management, tear strength, abrasion resistance and overall flame/heat resistance and, these fibers are Berry Amendment compliant.

Gore Fabrics Division will also exhibit at Techtextil.
