Japan Premium YAMAMOTO Material LineUp List of Yamamoto Materials & Processing

Introducing Yamamoto Corporation’s rubber material surface types:
The usage for each rubber material is decided by the original surface of Yamamoto Corporation’s rubber materials, the surface after processing, which comes to the front or back when used and the difference in body parts, etc.

The grades shown with stars below for strength and flexibility are general indications after setting “S (Smooth Skin)” as having three stars for both strength and flexibility.
Some surface processing cannot be applied to the rubber materials depending on the item number.
The grades shown with stars are indications after comparing them with other materials. Strength and flexibility will change when other processing is applied and/or fabrics are attached.

S Smooth Skin
Surfaces that are innate to rubber materials are called “Smooth Skin.” Smooth Skin is applied on the outside or inside of wetsuits, and its feature is its beautiful surface.
C Cell Skin
This surface is called “Cell Skin,”obtained by slicing the inside of raw rubber boards. The sectioned surface with the closed-cell foam is utilized to generate such effects as non-slip materials. In many cases, it is used on the surface after Jersey laminating.
CM Cross Mesh Skin
Processing the surface of rubber materials with “Cross Mesh Skin,” generates a moderate slip-proof effect and increases the strength of the surface.
SS Shark Skin
This material is called “Shark Skin.” The fine and deeply curved patterns on the rubber surface are to increase density and enable the highest strength rubber surface.
CHECK Design Skin
Surface designed and processed in a checked pattern by arranging “squares with many projections” and “flat squares with transverse grooves” in a grid pattern. The strength of the surface is slightly increased. Appeared in autumn 2016.
CHEVRON Design Skin
Processing named “Chevron” which repetitive V-shaped patterns appear by increasing and decreasing the size of microasperity. It has a slip-proof effect close to CM. Appeared in autumn 2016.
TRIPLET  Design Skin
A “Triplet” pattern with three horizontally arrayed lines are alternately arranged both vertically and horizontally. Each line is 4mm wide and 30mm long. Appeared in autumn 2016.
Taper Emboss
The process called “Taper Emboss” produces a sequential form like the end of a raw rubber board. It is generally used for separating rubber by each ditch such as in the neck, wrist and ankle parts of a suit.
Step Emboss
The “Step Emboss” is produced by embossing and creates narrow ditches deeply curved into the material. The separated “Step Emboss” slip is used for the elbow, knee, shoulder and side parts of a suit, which are rubbed when you wear, and bend in only one direction.
Compression Emboss
“Compression Emboss” processing that provides compression by wearing. By adopting it to the parts for calves and the upper part of arms of a wet suit, it exercises compression function and can lead to alleviating fatigue.
Super Honeycombs Intelligent Skin
“Super Honeycomb” is one of the “Intelligent Skin Series” that can control the flow of water. Regular hexagons are lined up to have ditches with 60 degrees. This realizes a reduction in resistance from water by controlling the water flow in a honeycomb (beehive) format.
Y-Grid Intelligent Skin
The “Y-Grid” of the “Intelligent Skin Series” has a design that is like half of Yamamoto Corporation’s logo placed in a grid-like (lattice) pattern. As this pattern has a similar configuration, which is based on 60-degrees as a regular hexagon, the Y-Grid Intelligent Skin also reduces water resistance in the same way as the “Super Honeycomb” from the same series.
Water Wing Intelligent Skin
“Water Wing” is the only process in the “Intelligent Skin Series” that increases water resistance. It can be used for parts that need to strongly grasp water by applying water resistance, and to add pressure.
