More Info on W. L. Gore & Associates

People rely on their ability to send and receive information, whether it’s communicated from smartphones, satellites or the infrastructures around us. Just as we depend on information, the wires and cables transporting information depend on dielectric materials to shield conductors, maintain signal reliability, and ensure that constant, lightning-quick dispatches can go through.

Since 1958, Gore has developed products that improve lives. At the center of these solutions is polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), a polymer with exceptional properties like high tensile strength, a low dielectric constant, UV resistance and many more. In 1969, the possibilities for PTFE expanded with Bob Gore’s discovery of expanded PTFE, or ePTFE.

Gore’s expertise in advanced dielectric materials dates back to the founding of the company. In 1958, Bill Gore saw an opportunity to pair his technological expertise in PTFE with a growing need for cabling in the computer industry; our first product, MULTI-TET™ wire and cable, soon followed. In the years since, our solutions for computing and telecommunications have transmitted information from satellites, the Apollo 11 moon-landing mission and the Mars Rover; enabled critical communication in military aircraft; contributed to wide-ranging test and measurement applications; and allowed passengers to enjoy WiFi on commercial flights.
