IFF 2018 Innovation Award Winner: W.L. Gore & Associates
Gore Workwear has reason to celebrate: In October, the Industrial Fabrics Foundation (IFF) honored GORE-TEX PYRAD® fabric for being a
revolutionary new technology that offers protection against arc-flash and flash-fire incidents with the added benefit of a waterproof, windproof and breathable GORE-TEX membrane.
U.S. Marketing Associate Jason Rodriguez, Elk Mills V, who managed the application process, notes,
Winning the innovation award in the fabrics, fibers and films category allows Gore to further position the GORE® PYRAD® brand and this new fabric technology within the oil & gas and utility markets. Being a new player within these industries, we are leveraging all opportunities to further showcase this fabric technology that we believe is a game changer compared to existing personal protective equipment (PPE) options.
A panel of experts chose Gore’s technology based on consumer benefit and distinctiveness from other products. Gore has been a member of the IFF since 2016 and won the innovation award for the first time.
