Breathable neoprene fabric

Neoprene is used extensively in the water sports, soft orthopedic, sportswear, footwear, equestrian, and thermal protective equipment sectors. However, conventional neoprene causes serious discomfort when worn against the skin of humans or animals. Stomatex overcomes this discomfort by dynamically removing moisture.

Stomatex embodies technology that allows impermeable materials (closed cell foams) to transfer heat and perspiration from the body. Stomatex technology has been successfully applied to closed cell neoprene with further variants under development. The product is currently being used in sports supports, equestrian products, and other similar products.
