Neptunic Sharksuits, San Diego, Calif., U.S.A., exhibited two of their specialist suits: the Neptunic NEMO II and the Neptunic C Suit. NEMO II, suitable for divers working in relatively stationary positions, is made using a liquid crystal polymer incorporated into a composite structure, with gloves and boots made from a steel mesh, and a polycarbonate helmet. The ‘C’ in C Suit stands for ‘component’; the suit combines stainless steel, nylon and polycarbonate and is made up of different parts. The diver can select to wear just some components, such as the arms or legs, “for the bold or the budget-minded,” or the full garment for full protection.
