CROSSTECH Direct Grip provides protection against blood, body fluids, gasoline, foam, sulphuric acid (37%), hydraulic fluid, chlorine and other chemicals.

Complies to NFPA1971 - Does not melt or degrade after heat exposure of 250 degrees for 5 minutes.

The primary feature of the Gore-Tex and Crosstech glove insert is liquid penetration resistance to common fire ground chemicals along with heat stress reduction and durability. Note: Eska gloves only use Crosstech glove inserts.

Gore-Tex fabric is engineered to give penetration resistance against water, NFPA 1971 common fire ground chemicals and AS 4967/ AS 2161.6 listed chemicals.
To give uniform resistance to contaminants and greater overall liquid protection, all Gore-Tex barriers are factory seam-selaed by Gore.

NFPA 1971 defined "common chemicals": Battery acid (37% sulphuric), gasoline (ASTM Ref. Fuel C), hydraulic fluid (phosphate-ester), aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) and swimming pool chlorine solution (65% free CI).

AS 4967 / AS 2161.6 chemicals tested in accordance with ISO 13994:1998 Procedure C1:40% sodium hydroxide; 36% hydrochloride acid; 37% sulphuric acid; 50% toluene and 50% iso-octane (V/V).

Fore penetration resistance against blood and body fluids, in addition to water and the NFPA and AS chemicals listed above, a Crosstech fabric has been specifically designed to pass 
liquid penetration-resistant challenges after more than two times the NFPA-required preconditioning cycles.
Gore does not claim that Gore-Tex fabric will pass NFPA requirements for pathogen resistance.

Both Crosstech and Gore-Tex glove inserts are heat and flame-resistant.
When tested, these textiles and Gore's intimate bi-component barrier technology create a thermally stable moisture barrier that will
not melt, separate, ignite or degrade after high heat exposure. Gore's moisture barriers also exhibited high hot and cold flex-to-leakage resistance, high UV degradation resistance, and high abrasion.
These barriers have been field-proven to provide durable waterproof protection after use and extended laundering.
