NCTO’s Focus on Gore’s High-Performance Military Fabrics

Written by W. L. Gore & Associates

ncto-logoThis week, as the National Council of Textile Organizations (NCTO) conducts their annual meeting in Washington D.C., W. L. Gore & Associates is proud to announce that our military fabrics division is the focus of an in-depth article in NCTO’s annual magazine, TEXTURES.

textures-2018-coverTitled “U.S. Textiles: High Performance in Every Military Environment,” and published this month, the story underscores Gore’s strategic role “developing textile-based defense products that are the most advanced in the world” and takes a deep dive into the workings of Gore’s global military fabrics business.

According to Jason Rodriguez, marketing communications manager for Gore’s Military Fabrics business, who is quoted in the article, “Our protective fabrics are designed essentially to help warfighters improve their mission effectiveness by staying alert, staying comfortable, staying dry, and remaining protected,” regardless of the climate conditions and environment.

Rodriguez adds that although GORE-TEX is Gore’s signature fabric and a legacy product, the company is continually developing new, high-tech military fabric technologies for the US and our allies in Europe and Korea. The article draws attention to several of Gore’s latest military and protective fabrics innovations, including GORE® CHEMPAK®, GORE® Katana Fabric and GORE-TEX PYRAD® Fabric.

Don Vavala, Gore’s Director, Military Government Affairs, adds: “One thing [that] helps Gore stand apart from other fabric providers is our comprehensive and robust understanding of our customers’ needs and the end-of use applications.

“Our commitment to fitness for end use is paramount.”
