Other aspects of individual protection were in the spotlight at W.L. Gore, where the new Gore PYRAD flame retardant/self-extinguishing fabric technology was showcased in combination with other non-flame retardant textiles to provide an optimum combination of thermal protection, environmental protection and comfort. In addition to applications in military outerwear and flame-resistant workwear, the new technology is already being applied to the latest generation of individual tents purchased by the U.S. Marine Corps. Gore has teamed up with NEMO Equipment Inc. to provide a new generation in military single wall shelter designs that offer significant improvements over incumbent tent designs (goremilitary.com; 410-506-5055).
