Maximum Under Water Protection


contitechA new dry suit fabric developed by ContiTech offers maximum protection and the greatest possible level of safety in and under water. At the same time, the coated fabric offers maximum wear comfort, as it is extremely lightweight and pleasingly flexible. Contitech developed it in close collaboration with Kallweit. The new fabric is made in Germany, and the result of several years of intensive development work. Kallweit GmbH found a reliable manufacturer of elastomer fabrics in ContiTech, a manufacturer that guarantees high material and delivery qualities. «Together with Kallweit, we gradually developed a product that meets all dry suit requirements both in a professional as well as a recreational setting», reports Rodrigo Maia, who heads the Engineered Coated Systems segment at ContiTech Elastomer Coatings. «We engaged in a constant exchange of information with ContiTech and continuously compared the theoretical laboratory results with our practical experience during test diving», adds Daniel Körner, general manager of Kallweit GmbH. The result was a fabric that remains watertight even after 170 diving hours under extreme loads. The new fabric from ContiTech is extremely watertight and thus offers a high level of safety for the diver. It is reliable and robust. The developers placed a special focus on high wear comfort. The innovative Condensation Control Technology (CCT) enables optimum regulation of the body temperature – a genuine advantage for the customer. The new fabric also has an extraordinarily pleasant feel. It is low-noise and feels light and pliant.
