SANTI Diving Equipment PROPER MAINTENANCE OF YKK AQUASEAL ZIPPER FOR DIVING DRYSUITS A. Correct usage • Always slowly and smoothly move the slider as vertically as possible when fastening the zipper - especially at the shoulder area. Angular pulling may cause element miss-engagement and may result in poor waterproof performance or damage of the slider and/or teeth. • Pulled angular and donned or doffed not fully open, the zipper slider may disintegrate from teeth. Use extremely carefully when donning and doffing the drysuit. Pay attention not to overstretch the slider by force. In case when the slider disintegrates contact Santi Service for advice immediately, as it might be possible to fix such case at site. • Overstretching of the top and bottom stops should be avoided as this may lead to above damages. • Zip and unzip slowly without using too much strength - unlike metal zippers, YKK Aquaseal zipper should be zipped by easy pulling the slider vertically down towards the docking end. • AQUASEAL® zipper is sensitive to UV degradation, creasing, and de-lamination and wear through friction. - do not leave the drysuit for drying in direct sunlight. Do not expose the zipper to direct UV operation. • Folding or crushing the zipper may affect its performance - use carefully to prevent from breaking.
