No PFOA on GORE Materials:
Interview with Bernhard Kiehl

Published by Mountainblog on .

GORE successfully completed a project specifically set up to eliminate perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) from all raw materials used in the manufacture of its weatherproof functional fabrics. This move affects all membranes and DWR (Durable Water Repellency) treatments for the whole range of fabrics used in finished products. This makes GORE one of the first companies in the sector to successfully manage the changeover to PFOA free raw materials for its entire range of textile products.

Bernhard Kiehl leader of the GORE Fabrics Division sustainability team – explains how they reach such a achievement and why it is so important for Gore, costumers and the enviroment.
