Porous and fiber media are used extensively in numerous venting applications ranging from medical to industrial. Porous plastics offer distinct advantages over mechanical vents or physical openings since dust and moisture can be kept out, and there are no moving parts which can stick or only work in one direction. There are numerous custom molded configurations, pore size and air flow rates, sheet and fiber materials, and self-adhesive products to choose from. Porex can also add functionality to vents: for example, self-sealing or color change options if the vent encounters moisture. If the application is complex, our development team can assist you in determining the most efficient way to meet your venting requirements.

Porex is continually evaluating and exploring new techniques to tackle these complex issues. Discover why Genuine Porex™ venting products offer design flexibility, performance, and durability that can make your products better.
