The hermetically sealed zipper is the heart of a drysuit. Unfortunately, it belongs to the category of "wearing parts".
Therefore, a replacement from time to time is indispensable. In our workshop we operate daily on the open heart. Your dry suit is in good hands with us and will serve you well again after the repair.
We work with professional industrial sewing machines and a sewing thread suitable for the purpose.
The correct installation procedure of a zipper depends on the particular drysuit. In trilaminate suits, zippers are usually sewn in and sealed. On neoprene suits, on the other hand, the zippers are glued in and sealed.
