In Episode 1 of this 2-part series we chat with the YULEX team to answer the most commonly asked questions surrounding our neoprene free, natural rubber wetsuits. 

In this episode we cover off:

  • What is Yulex? (The Yulex Company & Yulex Products)
  • What is the Yulex company backstory?
  • Where does Yulex natural rubber come from?
  • Where are the Hevea tree farms?
  • What is the process of creating Yulex natural foam for wetsuits?
  • Is there nasty chemicals and processes like traditional neoprene wetsuits?
  • Why is Yulex more sustainable than the more commonly used limestone or petroleum neoprene constructions?
  • Is Yulex renewable?
  • Is there enough Yulex natural rubber supply to replace the older petroleum & limestone neoprene constructions?

 Boil the kettle, pull up a seat and tune in.
