I would like to learn how SMOOTHSKIN wetsuit are colored.
I read a few articles on coloring rubber and it seems that a general dye like Ritdye would work. However what i wasn’t to know is how professional companies do this since i don’t want a bad result with the color peeling off in a few dives.

When you look at sit like polishing the color really seems indeed into the neoprene.
Is the neoprene heated during the process?

Any advice is welcome.
You could purchase from web sites the paint.As for the wet suit i use acrilic paint a little water mixed added visit a proper paint professional store i purchased olive colour Grey ,soil colour green got a old lid and mixed color to my preference tinting them use a sponge sinthetic or a piece of white packing foam to dunk and apply to fabric .then leave to dry for a few days in 20 to 30 c away from high humidity
