The following sequence of photos shows how to remove and replace a DAMX latex neck seal using our DIY system with a pre-prepared latex seal.
Although the suit shown is a breathable suit which has a neoprene over-neck fitted, the process is exactly the same for non-breathable suits and for suits without an over-neck fitted.
Please also read the text document which we supply with all DAMX DIY seals. It contains additional advice and guidance.

The whole process takes about 20 minutes if you have all the equipment to hand, a willing assistant and if you already know the appropriate temperature settings on your heat gun and iron. It would be advisable to allow an hour for your first attempt though.
Once completed correctly, the bond is as good as new and will NEVER peel apart until you want to fit another latex seal. The next time you fit a new seal, the task will be easier – no seamtape to remove – you simply heat the latex again and it will peel off ready for the next seal to be fitted.
