DELAWARE – Technical textile supplier Gore Fabrics has announced the creation of a thinner PFC-free membrane for apparel and footwear which it says will help reduce its carbon footprint.

The expanded polyethylene membrane - being called ePE - is due to be launched in Autumn 2022 in a range of Gore-Tex brand products, as well as outdoor and lifestyle products from brands including Adidas, Arc'teryx, Salmon, Dakine and Patagonia.

Gore says it applied its decades of scientific knowledge and polymer expertise to combine the right materials and processes to manipulate ePE into a strong microporous material.
