Since 2014, Tierra have been using fluorocarbon free DWR on all garments except Gore products. Gore has now set ambitious goals on eliminating PFCs of Environmental Concern from the life cycle of its consumer fabrics products by 2023. First out is implementing PFCec Free DWR on all 2-layer materials and Paclite from fall/winter 2018. Of course, we embrace this and simultaneously launch our first PFCec Free Gore products. Learn more about Gore’s PFC goal here. https://www.gore-tex.com/pfcgoal
PFCec stands for ”Per and Poly-Fluorinated Chemical of Environmental Concern”, which means that Gore guarantees that the fluoropolymers that harm the environment have been eliminated in their DWR (Durable Water Repellent).
GORE-TEX® products with PFCec Free DWR treatment offer protection against the elements for a wide range of activities and are GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY®.
