Why the GORE Membrane matters

Only GORE® Automotive Vents incorporate the performance benefits of the GORE Membrane. Made of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (ePTFE), it’s engineered with billions of pores. These pores are 700X larger than an air molecule, to ensure reliable airflow and pressure equalization. Yet at 20,000X smaller than a drop of water, these pores effectively block entry of liquids, dirt and debris.

The GORE Membrane is:

  • Chemically inert
  • Non-shedding
  • UV-resistant
  • Temperature-resistant
  • Hydrophobic and oleophobic
