Revolutionary breathable neoprene
While retaining many of the features of neoprene,
Ventiprene adds breathability and has redefined
the neoprene product market.
Body heat and sweat escapes as water vapor.
Designed for Outdoor
Engineered for outdoor activities with thermal protection.
Various thickness are ranged for different applications.
The Reason Behind
Neoprene has many advantages such as waterproof and thermal insulation, but it is not breathable as it is constructed with closed-cell structure.
While retaining many of the great features of neoprene, our patented technology creates channels which allow body heat and sweat go through as water vapor.
The revolutionary technology, breathable neoprene, has redefined the neoprene product market.
We built a tube with air pump mechanism to test the functionality of Ventiprene. The tube was divided by a piece of Ventiprene sheet firmly secured in the middle of the tube. When we add some water from the top of the tube, the water did not leak out due to the waterproof feature of neoprene. As air pumped from the bottom of the tube, bubbles came out in the water because air had gone through the breathable neoprene, Ventiprene.
ASTM D737 Air Permeability Test
Material breathability testing result
Tested and proven by a third party laboratory. According to ASTM D737, a material breathability testing, Ventiprene’s breathability is far surpass outdoor hardshell and regular neoprene.
Breathable neoprene has some promising advantages. It is an interesting development that could potentially offer benefits to new user groups, outside of water sports.
- The Jury Statement of Outdoor Industry Award 2016
