Garments designed with GORE® PYRAD® Fabric Technology provides excellent protection against heat and flame by balancing its flame resistance, thermal insulation, and thermal stability. It delivers enhanced flame resistance due to self-extinguishing properties when exposed to flash-fire conditions.

The unique engineering of GORE® PYRAD® Fabric Technology extinguishes flames as they are encountered, so that the fabric does not continue to burn. This technology reduces potential exposure to burns to the body and increases thermal protective performance (TPP) without an additional flame-retardant liner.

GORE® PYRAD® Fabric Technology improves the thermal stability and thermal insulation by enabling garments to maintain their integrity after they have been exposed to flames. This technology results in the garments that sustain a stable char, which means that they will not flake or disintegrate with minimal shrinkage after exposure to flame.
