The 4 layer construction Thermal Rebound lining. This technology goes back to the mid 1970’s where NASA developed the thermal blankets for their manned missions into space as insulation.
Since 2011 the same principle is used on all major sporting events where Athletes are draped in shiny silver blankets when they finish. This effect of survival blankest for the protection against cold conditions is now available in our neoprene wetsuits.
4 layer construction
1. The outer layer ensures resilient protection.
2. Super stretchy neoprene layer provides insulation and unrestricted movement.
3. Alloy Thermal Rebound retains and regulates body heat.
4. A quick dry thermal fleece offers comfort enhanced by the Zodiac2plush thermal grid for optimal warmth.
Extra protection layer between the neoprene and Zodiac2 to reflect body heat and to block wind chill. Patent pending nr. 15/169,749
Neolight heather 550+
The heather fabric ads the luxury look on our Mercury and OxyGen wetsuits. Besides looks the extra yarns offer a softer, more stretch and a smooth feel to the outer lining. The two tone colorscheme also indicates the areas in which the unique TR lining is used. Now in combination with our velvet feel Airflex2 inner lining and Thermal Rebound triple layering. Nasa technology incorporated.
FTM Taped seams
FTM TAPED SEAMS, our Fluid Taping Method seam construction. Triple glued seams with the outside of the seam sealed of by a wider black carbon neoprene seal. The inside of the seam is protected by our glued and blind stitched technology. FTM TAPED SEAMS are durable, watertight and keep their high stretch.
Zodic Jacquard velvet fleece on the inside, layered with a quick dry thermal fleece for more warmth and comfort. It absorbs the water from the skin, releases quickly and increases comfort.
Water based glue
The laminated neoprene sheets are cut into panels and put together to create a neoprene product such as a wetsuit. The lamination of all our wetsuits is done with water based glue, so called aqua-α. Unlike the traditional glue, the water based glue is solvent free and without chemicals (it removes 99% of the impurities). This avoids latex allergies. Don’t worry! Of course the glue will not dissolve in water. We made sure that the glue is as strong as the traditional glue.
