Porex has designed and supplied sintered porous plastic components to the automotive industry since the early 1970s. We designed and developed the first concept of utilizing a porous plastic vent as a flame arrestor for lead-acid batteries, which was a significant safety advancement. Today, automotive industry OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) across the world use Genuine PorexTM components for the design flexibility, part durability, and excellent functionality that our porous plastic parts deliver in these demanding applications.
