Construction
Melco Tape
Melco T-5000 tape is applied using a heat press for a watertight seal and additional reinforcement.
Blindstitched
Panels are double glued and then butted together followed by stitching that does not penetrate all the way through the neoprene. Inside the wetsuit, heat welded tape goes over the seams in high stress areas, this further strengthens the seams.
Flatlock
Neoprene is lapped together and then stitched, this creates a flat, flexible and comfortable seam. Flatlock stitching can be identified by a band of interlocked thread on both sides of the wetsuit, sometimes utilising a coloured thread for visual effect.
Neoprene

Latex neck seal
Latex gasket with 2mm neoprene outer collar. Latex seals will keep you dry, their tight fit means that it creates a strong seal keeping water out even when submerged in water. This tight fit does mean the garment is sometimes hard to put on and take off sometimes causing irritation to the skin. Latex by its own nature is a fragile material and should be cared for to ensure long-lasting performance. Due to the vulnerability of the latex seals no guarantee can be made once the garment has been worn.
Latex wrist seal
Latex gasket with velcro adjustable cuffs. Latex seals will keep you dry, their tight fit means that it creates a strong seal keeping water out even when submerged in water. This tight fit does mean the garment is sometimes hard to put on and take off sometimes causing irritation to the skin. Latex by its own nature is a fragile material and should be cared for to ensure long-lasting performance. Due to the vulnerability of the latex seals no guarantee can be made once the garment has been worn.

Twin Waist
Twin waist seals are found on our Dry, Semi-Dry Cags. The twin waist has been designed to be used with a spraydeck. They are designed to keep the water out if layered correctly. It reduces the amount of water that may enter the boat.
Powergrip

Tapeseams
We add fully taped seams to our fully waterproof garments to keep you dry in the harshest of conditions. Taping all seams on a garment regardless of where they are situated ensures heavy duty waterproofing. Taping the garment also seals the small holes made when the waterproof fabric has been sewn to create the garment. A hot-melt tape is applied over all the seams; this creates a perfect airtight seal allowing added strength and longevity to the garment.

Zip Systems
TTZIP

The TIZIP WaterSeal is made from a strong plastic coil zipper on a high strength fabric. Every coil half is safely embedded and secured in a plastic profile. When the TIZIP WaterSeal is closed, the sealing lips above and below the coil are compressed making a perfect seal. The entire plastic profile is highly abrasion resistant. The unique design prevents the slider from wearing down the sealing lips when the zipper is opened or closed. for more info visit http://www.tizip.com/produkt.php?lang=en
