What is Yamamoto Aurora?

Aurora, a high-performance material with which it is possible to produce smooth skin wetsuits that change color above and below water as a result of the company’s proprietary SCS coating technology.

SCS is coated over closed cell polychloroprene to provide multiple functions including abrasion, chlorine, saltwater and UV resistance, as well as quick-drying properties and thermal insulation.

Aurora is hydrophobic in air and hydrophilic in water. The micelle-structured molecules on its surface repel water when in contact with air and reduce the surface resistance when in contact with water.

The material is lined with Green wave, a plant-based polyamide fabric, which via SCS coating, makes putting the wetsuits on and taking them off extremely easy. Green wave is also quick drying, with low thermal conductivity and improved heat retention when in use.
