Here are some simple recommended tips that will help to maximize the life of your ISURUS wetsuit.
After each use the wetsuit should be rinsed thoroughly with fresh water. Fill a tub or large basin with fresh water and submerge the wetsuit. Flush inside and out. Saltwater is extremely corrosive and left to dry on the wetsuit will crystallize which will weaken the cell structure of the neoprene leading to premature failure of the wetsuit.
The wetsuit should be hung to dry by draping it over a wide hanger in a ventilated area that is not in direct sunlight. Leaving a suit in direct sunlight will shorten the life of your wetsuit. Avoid hanging the wetsuit from the shoulders and using a narrow clothes hangers as it can damage the wetsuit. The wetsuit should never be worn in chlorine water as chlorine will damage the neoprene.
Once dry turn the wetsuit inside out to dry the other surface.
STORING YOUR WETSUIT
Your Isurus wetsuit should be stored on a wide coat hanger to avoid putting creases in the neoprene. It should be stored out of direct sunlight. Never store a wetsuit wet or store it folded, in a bag or in a vehicle for any extended length of time as it will shorten the life of the material.
Using a mild detergent or wetsuit cleaner will recondition the neoprene and extend the wetsuit life. Harmful salt, bacteria and body grease are removed with a mild detergent or wetsuit cleaner. The suit must be rinsed thoroughly after hand washing. Never machine wash the wetsuit.
When traveling or sending your wetsuit by mail folding the wetsuit correctly will protect your wetsuit from damaging creases.
