Read more about this product

The Prolimit PF2 free zip ecological wetsuit for men is the most sustainable wetsuit ever made. This wetsuit is one of the few FSC approved wetsuits, which means it is an environmentally appropriate product but is still made with the best technology available. This wetsuit is made to keep you warm, with its 6mm neoprene you can be sure that even in winter, you won’t get cold. This year the wetsuit is also available in a 4mm edition.

Eco-friendly neoprene

Carbon Black recycled

Carbon Black is a key ingredient to produce neoprene. Our eco carbon black is made from recycled tires. The tires are shredded and thereafter transformed into powdered carbon black. Unlike the traditional carbon black, this method reduces the energy consumption and the CO2 emission by 200g per wetsuit.

Limestone neoprene

After the process of the Carbon Black, the substance will be added to the neoprene chips. Our neoprene chips are made from limestone. We use earth mined limestone to replace petrochemicals in our neoprene. Since it comes from nature, it has less impact on the environment.

In short, limestone neoprene is more comfortable, longer lasting, more eco-friendly compared to petroleum based neoprene and therefore also better for nature. Limestone neoprene products are more flexible, lighter and have exceptional thermal insulation with high stretch.

Recycled neoprene

Under high temperature and pressure the raw sheets (carbon black mixed with neoprene chips and key ingredients) become foamed rubber buns. Then they are sliced into specified thicknesses for lamination. The trimmed edges and redundant neoprene will be recycled and reused in the mixing process to produce more neoprene sheets.

We strive to optimize the whole production process as much as possible and technology permits. Unfortunately it is yet not possible to fully recycle old wetsuits as they have been laminated with fabrics by the glue.

Nowadays neoprene can be recycled under certain conditions. We hope we can fully recycle old wetsuits and other neoprene products in the near future. At Prolimit we are always challenging ourselves to create new, innovative and more sustainable techniques.

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.

In short, we add the color before spinning. With this procedure in which we color the yarn without the dying process, we save 104L of water per kg of fabric. The advantages of dope dyeing are in line with our goal to produce products with respect for our planet.

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.

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.

Nature Prene®

FSC is promoting environmentally appropriate products including cleaner air and water. Our Prolimit PF2 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.
