GXE is the new lightweight and flexible GORE-TEX® 2-layer material providing greater freedom of movement for the wearer. It is waterproof and windproof as well as breathable, and the fabric remains light and flexible even in wet conditions.

The GXE fabric is made of polyester and antistatic fibres with a flame-retardant and electric arc-protective laminate. The material has inherent flame protection in the sense that the flame-protective performance is included in the laminate. No flame retardant treatment of the outer textile is added. The fabric’s protective performance is exactly the same on the first day of usage as it would be after years of using and washing the garment.

The high-visibility GXE fabric provides outstanding Multinorm protection and is certified for a wide range of hazards. The garments are electric arc-tested for both Box test and Open Arc, with very high ratings. The heat and flame protection also includes molten metal splash resistance. In addition, the fabric is approved for heavy welding class 2, has electrostatic properties and protects against liquid chemicals. Approved for 30 washes at 60°.
