New GORE® PolyVent XS

Streamline designs with a 30% smaller vent!

New GORE® PolyVent XS is 30% smaller in all dimensions for design options and easier integration into small, thin-walled outdoor electronics.

With its compact, low-profile design, new GORE® PolyVent XS is the right fit for smaller housings with thinner walls, where internal and external space is at a premium, and where material cost is a concern.

PolyVent XS is the right fit for your streamlined enclosure designs.

  • Smaller diameter (only 14.4 mm) for easy integration in smaller housings with limited exterior clearances. 
  • Low installed height (only 3.75 mm) improves aesthetics, fits in tight spaces, and reduces risk of damage due to mechanical impact or steam-jets.
  • Shorter “legs” (only 1.45 mm) minimize vent intrusion inside the enclosure for more flexibility in component layout, and easier heat transfer to the housing exterior. 

PolyVent XS delivers the durable protection you can count on.

  • The vent body and cap of hydro stabilized PBT GF30 provide excellent mechanical stability and resistance to high humidity and temperatures.
  • Advanced oleophobic GORE® Membrane reliably protects against ingress of water, and lower surface-tension liquids such as cleaning fluids, and particles such as dust.
  • The silicone O-ring durably withstands aggressive liquids like cleaning fluids, and high temperatures (to 284°F or 140°C).
