Long ago, around the fifties, practitioners of water sports were looking for insulated foams. The idea was to keep a thin layer of trapped water between the material and the skin. By then, neoprene was the preferred material for thermal insulation. Thus it began the era of suits to be worn in the water to keep the user’s temperature in comfortable levels: WETSUITS…! One of the key points for thermal insulation must be the stitching used to put together a neoprene wetsuit. At Voll Will, we pay special attention to latest techniques of stitching, the most popular are still flat stitching, over lock stitching, zigzag binding, blind stitch and heating tape sealing. We have the capability to make stitching on neoprene for a wide range of thicknesses, from 0.5mm up to 10mm, even for further specialized requirements from our customers.
This useful neoprene garment was created more than one hundred years ago. Entirely created for leisure purposes, neoprene waders vary its uses from waterfowl hunting, fly fishing, and generally for any type of recreational fishing. One of the most important features to focus on neoprene Waders manufacturing is the waterproofing. For accomplish a 100% waterproof on the neoprene waders production, it is indispensable to heat press the seal tape on the stitching lines. It might put the user in danger if the stitching and sealing quality is not 100% waterproof. At Voll Will, we constantly train our workers to ensure they have the expertise to do the job without mistakes.
Polychloroprene synthetic rubber has been produced for more than 80 years already. It was named "Neoprene(r)" by DuPont(r), an international well-known brand that, by those years, was focusing on finding alternatives to the expensive natural rubber. During that time, the biggest novelty of neoprene was its inherent resistant benefit to water, as well as resistance to oils, heat, solvents and even its outstanding resistance to degradation (better than natural or synthetic rubber). Subsequently it was the perfect material for several industrial uses such as wire insulation, gaskets, and hose material for the automobile industry. Nowadays it is used in a wider range of industries. Because Neoprene is a thick foam (compared to other materials used in garment manufacturing), high quality stitching is fundamental. At Voll Will Enterprises Co. LTD. we understand this high quality demanding stitching technology, and we successfully manage many popular techniques used on the industry, such as flat stitching, over lock stitching, zigzag binding, blind stitch and heating tape sealing. Our manufacturing capabilities allows us to do stitching on neoprene thickness that goes from 0.5mm up to 10mm, and even further gluing techniques depending on the extensive requirements from our customers.
