Care of Silicone Seals

Silicone seals are better in many ways than regular latex seals

  • They have more stretch than latex seals
  • Treated properly they will outlast and out perform latex seals
  • Hypoallergenic alternative for people with latex allergies
  • Increased resistance to chemicals, ultraviolet light, and ozone
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Easy to replace seals, once the neck and/or wrist ring systems are in place

 

Treat these seals the same as latex seals

  • Handle them with care
  • Do not leave them in direct sunlight
  • Do not over stretch the seal more than required
  • Assist yourself with a free hand when pulling the seals over your head or hands
  • Avoid contact with sharp objects, like finger nails or rings
  • Apply perfume free talc on the seals before donning the suit to minimize friction and increase the longevity of the seals. Talc can be purchased from NAPA Auto Parts - Tire Repair Talc Powder part # BK 7651339 and from pottery/ceramic suppliers.

 

When trimming seals

  • Use sharp scissors
  • The cut edges should be as smooth and straight as possible, avoid sharp angular edges
  • Finish the cut out from the seal edge
  • Do not trim across trim lines
  • Poor trimming can cause your seal to tear
