What is Gore-Tex made of?
In 1969, Genevieve Gore founded a new company in the basement of their home. Bill Gore quit his job as he believed he had discovered the untapped potential of synthetic polymer PTFE, or polymer polytetrafluoroethylene.
It was their son, Bob, that discovered that by rapidly stretching PTFE, he could create expanded PTFE that resulted in an incredibly strong, microporous material with a long list of extremely useful characteristics.
After 7 years, the first sales of waterproof, windproof, breathable Gore-Tex fabric was made.
The Gore-Tex membrane is extremely thin at about 0.01 mm. Gore-Tex is created by bonding the membrane to high-performance linings and outer textiles that create the laminate.
