From spring 2021 the socks of our new waders feature the most sustainable and functional solution out there using plant based Yulex® Natural Rubber and a limestone based high density sole. To reduce the use of petroleum-based neoprene, the socks use plant based Yulex® Natural Rubber from FSC certified hevea rubber trees.

 

Yulex® Natural Rubber reduce the CO2 emissions by up to 80% compared to petroleum based neoprene. The rubber is laminated to recycled polyester on both sides by using a water-based glue. This is by far a better choice for the environment compared to industrial neoprene. For the stocking foot sole, an extremely high dense rubber is required and here a limestone based rubber is the best combination of performance and endurance while caring for our planet. This material uses calcium carbonate from limestone sedimentary rocks to form chloroprene rubber chips and they are then melted, infused and baked into foams before sliced to the correct thickness.
