Latex cuffs on dry diving suits have a limited life span due to certain environmental influences but also depending on the type of storage. Care products such as skin cream also shorten the lifetime of the cuff considerably. If the cuff becomes sticky or shows a fine crack formation, the cuff has to be changed.
We supply you with high quality cuffs from European production, available in 4 sizes which usually correspond to the dry suit size.
New cuffs have quite a lot of traction, so please put them over a small bucket etc. for a night before wearing them for the first time. If you cut it before, the cuff will often expand after a few dives and water can penetrate.
Usually the cuff sizes match the men's suit sizes. So Trocki in L, cuffs in L.
Women's skirts usually one size smaller - so Trocki in L, cuffs in M.
Often there is a number in the cuff - have a look. If you do not know the cuff size, it is best to measure the circumference of the arm at the wrist.The circumference for all cuff sizes on the mounting side is approx. 275 mm, diameter approx. 8.75 cm.
How do I glue the seal in?
In the networks there is a lot of information about who has tried where. Sometimes with more, sometimes with less success. Be careful, some adhesives will attack the latex.
We recommend (and use in our workshop) the 2K - adhesive from UNITEC Helmsdorf, the HELASTOPAKT 2K with the hardener RFE. As cleaning agent we use solvent LÖSIT MEK from the same company.
You can find these products in our Shop.
