Nature Prene®

FSC is promoting environmentally appropriate products including cleaner air and water. Our Prolimit PF1 series is made out of plant based rubber derived from sources that are FSC certified. Our certified neoprene is laminated with recycled polyester and a lining made out of recycled PET bottles. Lamination is done with water based glue. 20% more stretch and lighter than previously offering full freedom of movement for most extreme conditions.

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.

Dope dyed yarns

Before lamination we need to prepare lining fabrics. Prolimit uses the dope-dyeing process. This means that we don’t dye the fabric in our production process anymore. The traditional way of coloring has a high water consumption, using a lot of energy and producing a large amount of industrial waste water and toxic chemicals. Instead of the traditional and common way, we use the method of dope dyed yarns. Dope dying is an energy saving and a more environmental-friendly method. Dope dyed yarns are made by adding colorant to the polymer melt in spinning.

Recycled polyester

In our Nature Prene wetsuit we use PET bottles. A wide selection of our fabrics are knitted from polyester yarns made from recycled plastic bottles. One wetsuit contains 45 recycled plastic bottles. We reduce waste and material consumption at the same time.

Reach compliant

Our wetsuits are PAH (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons) free and 100% reach compliant. Reach compliant means we have achieved to ban the use of extender oils in our neoprene sheets for a better environment. REACH is a regulation of the European Union, adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from risks that can be posed by chemicals in the production process.

The PAH neutral neoprene has improved characteristics such as weight and stretch, and it also prevents skin irritation. We banned the use of extender oils in our neoprene which is better for your skin and nature.

Certified neoprene

This wetsuit is made out of plant based rubber derived from sources that are FSC certified. The certified neoprene is laminated with recycled polyester and a lining made out of recycled PET bottles. Lamination is done with water based glue. In addition, this wetsuit has 20% more stretch and is lighter than before, offering full freedom of movement in the most extreme conditions.
