BIO-SS / Eco-Family
Bio-based Rubber Foam, Neoprene-free soft wetsuit material
BIO-SS PLUS 75% Bio-based Rubber Sponge is the USDA (the United States Department of Agriculture) certificated bio-based Light-weight Rubber Foam under Biopreferred(r) program. It is the closed-cell sponge made from renewable raw materials, such as sugar cane, seashell, rubber tree and non-edible plant oil. More than 75% of the polymer is the bio-based rubber, which minimizes the usage of the petrochemical raw material and the mining of the mineral.
BIO-SS 75% Bio-based Rubber Sponge is 100% neoprene free* but with the characteristics of warm-keeping, weather-resistance and elongation, which is suitable for diving suit or surfing suit. Its physical performances have not been compromised compared to the ordinary neoprene rubber sponge and it lowers the environment impact further.

Laminated with recycled fabrics
Instead of laminated with regular jersey, just simply change to recycled fabrics which achieve higher level of sustainability.
Recycled Nylon Fabric Laminate
Recycled Nylon jersey is the fabric made of the recycled Nylon fibers and can be laminated to the rubber sponge.
Recycled Polyester Fabric Laminate
Recycled Polyester fabric is the fabric made of the recycled polyester fibers and can be laminated to the rubber sponge. The recycled sources are the post-consumer plastic bottles and the production waste.
