Apeks Thermiq Hooded Vest 5/3mm Women’s
The Apeks Thermiq Hooded Vest gives you extend bottom times by staying warmer for longer with even heat distribution that increases body temperature by an average of 2°C. Temperature is equalized between warmer parts of the body to the core and integrated hood for a more comfortable, warmer dive.
The hooded vest is made from a mix of 5mm and 3mm super-stretchy limestone neoprene allowing greater flexibility in the water and ease of fitting.
WHAT IS GRAPHENE?
Graphene is a one-atom-thick layer of carbon atoms arranged in a hexagonal lattice and conducts heat better than any material on earth. Graphene equalizes the body temperature – transferring heat from warmer parts of the body to colder parts – without the need for a power source. It increases the body temperature by an average of 2°C and has earned itself the title of ‘wonder material.
Apeks Thermiq Hooded Vest 5/3mm Features
- ECO NEOPRENE: Neoprene made from limestone is kinder to the environment than traditional petroleum-based neoprene.
- LIQUID SEAMS: Double stitched and sealed seams prevent water entry and increase the wetsuit’s life.
- SUPER STRETCH: 4-way stretch neoprene so you can move with minimal restrictions.
- INTERNAL SEALS:
- WATER-BASED GLUE: (AQUA A) Water-based lamination and bonding adhesives use less harmful chemicals and solvents.
- GRAPHENE TECHNOLOGY: Superconductor lining transfers heat from warm spots to cold spots.
- RECYCLED LAMINATION FABRIC: Lamination fabric is made from recycled plastic bottles.
Apeks are committed to using environmentally friendly materials and processes whenever possible to help reduce our carbon footprint.
We turned solvent-based laminating glue into water-based glue, eliminating harmful volatile organic compounds.
Dope-dying infuses dye pigments into the molten plastic solution to produce coloured yarns without dying process. This saves tremendous amounts of water while reducing energy consumption and water pollution.
Eco Carbon black
Carbon black, one of the key ingredients of neoprene can now be made from scrap rubber tyers. This significantly reduces energy consumption and reduces CO2 emission by 200g per wetsuit.
The main neoprene compound uses calcium carbonate from limestone to form chloroprene rubber chips, remaining chloroprene instead of using dirty petroleum-based ingredients.
