Antistatic Protection in Garments
If you work with petrochemicals, fuel distribution, or on airfields, you know that electrical sparks from static discharge can ignite a fire or cause an explosion. GORE® antistatic fabric technology effectively dissipates dangerous static charges with a conductive grid 10,000 times denser than conventional conductive grids.
GORE-TEX fabrics made with GORE® antistatic fabric technology exceed industry safety standard EN 1149-3. This technology is located in the fabric’s membrane, so even if the garment’s face fabric is damaged, the membrane remains a sealed, protective layer. This construction allows the fabric to maintain the waterproof, windproof, and breathable qualities that keep you comfortable as well as safe.
- Protection against flames caused by static charges
- Increased comfort from high breathability
- Durably waterproof and windproof protection
- Military fuel-handler coverall
