About eVent membrane technology and fabrics

Since 1999, eVent fabrics have set the standard for truly air permeable and waterproof membranes in textiles. The patented technology used to create eVent membranes was invented in the 1990s to improve the pollutant-capturing performance of air filtration systems and give superior protection to industrial machinery such as gas turbines. eVent membranes—with billions of pores per square inch—are now widely used for filtration, venting, and as a waterproof breathable barrier for products used in the automotive, medical, industrial, apparel, and other markets.

eVent fabrics—found in outdoor, protective and military apparel and footwear—were the first and are the only waterproof performance fabrics on the market that vent directly to ‘let the sweat out.’ GE, through GE Energy’s Environmental Services division located in Kansas City, Mo., manufactures both the eVent membranes and fabrics, and partners with worldwide suppliers to offer a broad selection of textiles to manufacturers.
