Friendly advice regarding the usage of Silicone Seals from Waterproof
Waterproof's Silicone Seals are revolutionising drysuit diving. They have superior resistance against heat, ozone, sun,
aging and chemicals, but still require care.
Yes, they stretch more than latex, and it is fun to show friends how amazing they are, BUT all material has a limit
when it can rip or tear — so can your Silicone Seals. Just because you can stretch them does not mean you should. You
only have to stretch it over your head, or hand, no need to include your whole family.
The Silicone Seals do well on abrasion tests but can be damaged when impacted or when the seals come in contact
with sharp edges. Please be careful with nails, rings, earrings and other sharp objects. Also, take care to avoid dropping
lead weights or tanks on them and avoid stepping on the seals.
Issues with ripped seals can appear due to sharp edges on the ring systems. This is mostly related to worn-out rings or
carelessly polished moulds. Please be sure that the ring systems you use to mount the seals have smooth edges, if not,
sand and polish the edges for your own benefit.
Make sure you use sharp scissors. The easiest way to achieve an even trim line is to make long cuts with the scissors.
Rounded waves on the edge are OK, however, the "knicks" or "jagged" edges should be avoided. A cut in the edge will
cause the Silicone Seal to rip easily.
