The difference between crushed neopreneand compressed neoprene. All neoprene usedin diving is considered compressed neoprene. It is manufactured under acompression process. A good example of why foam neoprene (also often calledcompressed neoprene) doesn't make a good dry suit is look at your old wetsuit. You'll notice that the knees and elbows get mushy.This is from the impact ofyour knees against a hard surface. When you do this, it ruptures the cellsinside. The cells eventually rupture into one another creating seepage A. Your dry suit is now a wetsuit. And once this starts, it'll never be dry again. With a DUI Crushed Neoprene dry suit, they first build the suit and then put itunder a precise amount of pressure, for a precise amount of time and at aprecise temperature. This crushes all of the cells. The cells do not rupture, rather the cell membranes flatten against one another. Your DUI CrushedNeoprene dry suit will not change thickness at depth. Some manufacturers even"claim" to have taken a thicker piece of material and"compressed" it down to a thinner thickness, like they compress 4mmto 2mm. Want to see for yourself?
They should weigh the same. Bottom line - DUI CrushedNeoprene dry suit material will far outlast any compressed neoprene on thedry suit market.
