Keep automobiles safer with higher performing venting materials

Compared to competitive vents, POREX Virtek® vents:

  • Are a sintered structure that is tougher and more durable than expanded PTFE.
  • Can be directly ultrasonic or thermally welded to plastic enclosures, creating a permanent bond.
  • Restricts moisture vapor transmission, which results in less humidity entering into the enclosure during cooling, thereby reducing potential condensation issues.

Optimize headlight performance

Without the fragility and variability common in non-sintered materials, POREX Virtek PTFE is a unique sintered material that outperforms competitive expanded materials. With its robust porous structure, our vents equalize pressure while minimizing humidity flow into the enclosure and protects enclosure seals from premature failure.

Specifically designed for exterior automotive lights, our vents:

  • Reduce moisture buildup and condensation– POREX Virtek resists the entry of moisture into the headlight enclosure, thus lowering the risk of condensation on the headlamp lens.
  • Stop contaminants from entering enclosure–POREX Virtek sintered material repels water, dust, oil and other automotive fluids.
  • Assemble easily–Very robust sintered structure allows easy handling and can be ultrasonic or thermal welding without cumbersome assembly methods.
  • Free of PFOA: Compliant with (EC) 1907/2006 REACH / Regulation (EU) 2019/1021 POP

Protect electronic enclosures with sintered PTFE material

POREX Virtek PTFE is a unique sintered material that outperforms common expanded PTFE.

Without the fragility and inconsistency found in non-sintered PTFE materials, our vents:

  • Reduce pressure buildup in sealed enclosures–Air-permeable structure acts as a pressure relief valve, equalizing pressure and protecting enclosure seals from premature failure. 
  • Stop contaminants from entering enclosure– POREX Virtek sintered material repels dust, water, oils and other automotive fluids.
  • Assemble easily–Sintered structure allows easy handling and ultrasonic welding without cumbersome assembly techniques.
  • Free of PFOA: Compliant with (EC) 1907/2006 REACH / Regulation (EU) 2019/1021 POP
