Gore icon for ingress protectionAdvanced ingress protection can help today’s higher-value lamp assemblies deliver the reliable performance customers expect … and help OEMs and Tiers avoid warranty claims that can damage brand reputations and bottom lines.

GORE® Automotive Vents provide robust, life-of-vehicle ingress protection for automotive headlamps, rear lamps, fog lamps and exterior accessory lighting applications. 

The membranes in these adhesive vents offer both hydrophobic and oleophobic protection, providing a barrier to ingress of water, fine dust, dirt, automotive fluids and other contaminants that could damage lamp assemblies and any integrated electronics. Backed by a durable adhesive, these GORE® Vents are also designed to maintain their secure bond to the housing for the life of the vehicle.

How it works

Our vents are a barrier to contaminants. They keep both fluids and particulates from passing through our membranes of 100% ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene). 

And these high roll-off membranes promptly shed water or fluids after contact, to deliver the best of both worlds: reliable ingress protection along with responsive pressure equalization.
