Health and Enviroment
The neoprene we use:
- does not contain Latex
- does not contain phthalates
- does not cause allergies
- it is based on Limestone (calcareous neoprene)
- belongs to the sponge rubber category
- compliant with the flow regulation (registration, evaluation, authorization and restriction of chemicals)
The limestone neoprene (based on Limestone) has a high micro-cellular structure. These are independent closed cells (basically bubbles) inside the neoprene that are packaged together with an extremely high density.
Thanks to its high density microcellular structure, limestone neoprene (based on Limestone) tends to be lighter; offers greater elasticity to increase comfort and freedom of movement. Moreover, the fundamental aspect is that the higher density of the cellular structure makes the limestone neoprene a highly efficient insulator for a better heat retention, allowing, in other words, to remain warmer.
In summary, this micro-cellular structure offers several important advantages to the functionality of wetsuits compared to the traditional oil-based neoprene:
- It is hotter
- It’s more elastic
- It’s more waterproof
- It is lighter in weight
A further important advantage of limestone neoprene is that it is petroleum-free.
