The suit material is as it suggests, heavy duty, built to withstand the rigors of diving in a harsh working environment. Whether the job is cleaning a ships hull, carrying out welding and inspection, or clearing a fouled propeller, the Viking HD is equal to these tasks and more.
- Heavy duty material to withstand the harshest environments
- Internal stitched and taped seams
- External vulcanized seams for security
- Easy to clean when diving in contaminated water
- Easy to repair, minimizing downtime
The Viking HD material is a blend of natural and synthetic rubbers (NR/EPDM), on a two way stretch knitted polyester lining. Total material weight is 1550 +/- 100 g/m2.

Internal seams are stitched together with an elastic tape for security. External seams are vulcanized with a 25 mm rubber tape. Vulcanization is a chemical bonding process, ensuring watertight seams.
Additional layers of anti slip textured rubber are applied to areas at risk of wear. The shoulders and zipper are reinforced. The front of the legs from above the knee, down to the boots, and around the boots are also protected from abrasion and puncturing.

Glove ring options:
In order to make the suit completely waterproof, it is possible to fit a rubber cuff ring system with fixed external rubber ring, and loose stiff plastic ring which holds the latex seal in place. The alternative is a plastic bayonet glove ring system with a plastic ring mounted on the sleeve, and a replaceable cuff held in place with a plastic ring.
Both systems then make the fitment of a latex or Viton®/Butyl or Nitrile/Chloroprene glove possible. Latex and rubber mittens are available for fitting to the rubber cuff ring system for heavy working conditions.
