Mantaray wetsuits are made of the finest quality neoprene available internationally, in order to reflect our high standards for maximum comfort, second skin fit, unmatched flexibility, extreme durability and perfect insulation against cold water temperatures.
No other neoprene manufacturer is able to fulfil such high standards than Yamamoto, Japanese market leader in neoprene manufacturing. Yamamoto Corporation's commitment to developing innovative, high performance and pioneering technologies on rubber-based materials, makes her as the best choice for applications in professional sports, health and wellness, aerospace and apparel as well as a plethora of other fields.
Yamamoto is also a keen advocate of the environmental protection, using only eco friendly materials, made of the natural component Calcium carbonate (CaCo3), in a concentration of 99.7%.
All types of neoprene (closed-cell - open cell, closed-cell - lined, lined - open cell, double lined) are available from 1.5 to 10mm thickness. All closed-cell wetsuits are specially processed with the unique ultra-low resistance hydro-repellent coating (SCS) in many different colors. The available types are:
YAMAMOTO 39: Yamamoto’s value for money neoprene, durable and flexible, with excellent buoyancy and good cell memory.
YAMAMOTO 40: Very soft and warm neoprene, ideal for the ambush technique in shallow waters and mid depths.
YAMAMOTO 45 PRO: Extremely flexible neoprene for unprecedented range of movement, enhanced comfort and superior heat retention. Ideal for mid to deep water spearfishing and freediving. Good cell memory and excellent buoyancy.
YAMAMOTO 50 PRO-X: A new kind of neoprene, introduced to Greece exclusively by Mantaray. A technical neoprene, formed by Yamamoto for deep spearfishing and freediving. Extremely dense, with excellent buoyancy and great cell memory.
S.C.S. Super Composite Skin is a hydrodynamic coating for the surface of "Smooth Skin", that reduces drag, allowing the suit to glide through water more efficiently. By applying micellar structure processing with both hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties, it coats the surface with water molecules when the surface is wet. This results in reduction in the abrasion resistance when donning and doffing the wetsuit, and alleviates water resistance. Less friction. Less drag. Due to its ultra low surface friction 0.032 (in comparison to 4.0 of regular neoprene), SCS coating improves also durability and strength.
Mantaray considers each individual customer's specific needs, so that to determine what suit to recommend. Combination of materials, neoprene thickness and overall details, are necessary elements to be decided prior to customising each unique suit for each diver. In addition the after-sales service has always been and remains a priority for Mantaray, thus creating a very personalised buyer experience.
