New Plant Based Insulating Foam Called Greenprene

Hyperflex Unveils New Wetsuit Line 100% Neoprene Free, Sustainable, Plant Based Insulating Foam Called Greenprene®

100% Neoprene Free, Sustainable, Plant Based Insulating Foam Called Greenprene

Hyperflex is proud and excited to unveil our latest line of wetsuits. This new wetsuit is made from a 100% Neoprene free, sustainable, plant based insulating foam called Greenprene®.

Consumers should be careful not to confuse Greenprene® with other products claiming to be Neoprene free. Hyperflex is the only company on the planet to offer Greenprene®. Most products claiming to be Neoprene Free do not contain insulating foam and therefore offer no insulating/thermal protection properties.

The Hyperflex Greenprene® Wetsuit is a true sustainable replacement to the traditional Petroleum based Neoprene wetsuit. A completely plant based insulating foam that is available in thicknesses from 1 to 7mm.

Greenprene® has been tested and is approved by the United States Department of Agriculture as a Biobased and Biopreferred product.

The wetsuit also utilizes Bio-SpanTM recycled high stretch laminates and Aqua-SilkTM, a durable abrasion resistant exterior fabric. Both fabrics are made from recycled plastic water bottles.

  • Biobased Plastics – Advantages & Disadvantages

  • Compostable Plastics – Advantages & Disadvantages

  • PLA – Advantages & Disadvantages

All Hyperflex Greenprene® wetsuits are packaged using 100% recycled materials, which are printed using soy based inks.

Greenprene® could very well be one of the biggest changes to a surfers thermal protection, since the inception of the wetsuit!
