O’Shea Limestone Neoprene Wetsuit
‘Normal’ neoprene is made from oil. However a neoprene has recently been developed – it is petroleum free and is made from limestone.
As you can imagine limestone has the advantage of being way easier than oil to clean up in the case of a spill. So is it better in the water as well?
It’s way more impermeable than regular neoprene. Limestone neoprene is 98 per cent water impermeable against petroleum-based neoprene which is 65 per cent water impermeable.
The structure of the cells within the material also means that for the same thickness you get a much warmer wetsuit – as well as it being drier, lighter and more flexible!
The improved durability of these wetsuits means they will last longer therefore less of them will end up in landfills and they will have less impact on the environment.
